    Don't see why not, if you have rotavated and tilled weeds should be ploughed under.

    If any do come through just use a selective herbicide later in year

    Roto-tilling through grass is a problem. Its tough--AND--it results in big clumps of sod--which you then have to remove by picking them out by hand. Haul away in wheelborrow, throw into truck...

    I am thinking, kill it, allow to rot for 2 to 3 weeks. Sow seed. Add starter fert and soil amendments. Rake it in to bury the seed. Water every day for 30 days. Kill weeds with broadleaf weed killer as needed. Add a second fertilizer treatment to boost thickness--use slow release fert at this time.
