    You have to wait till it's growing for it to work.

    It's not likely that you'll kill much grass with weed-b-gone anyway. Get 'er dun!

    Harley rake it and then use imprelis then sod it as long as its fescue or BG you are good - imprelis also kills bermuda.

    thanks for the info. Theres not a whole lot of grass to begin with. do you think that i could just till it under, rake it add my compost,till again, role it and then lay the sod?
