Hi, i am currently in the process of preparing my soil for a seed (i bought a new build and the garden is/was a mess) hopefully i will have this process sorted by mid - August.

if i do manage to get the soil sorted by mid August, should i spray a weed killer down, leave it 2/3 weeks and seed in September?

thanks
