Just seeded but now have delima

Hello everyone,

I recently tore out my existing lawn(Basically weeds and rocks..), Tilled, added soil, then seeded. a day or two after the seeding we had a big rain and I i noticed some areas did not irrigate water like I wanted ( The soil new soil settled in some areas even more then i hoped. Even worse weeds are starting to pop all over. Even though I sprayed grass and weed killer on the yard twice during the process of removal and tilling.

Now that I see all this I want to go back in remove the weeds add more soil to let the water push away from the house.... With all this I have changed to wanting SOD as a guy from work is a contractor and can get me a good deal.

My question is, besides adding new soil and removing the new weeds, can I still plant the sod over the ungerminated grass seed? Basically the yard looks ready to go for sod but has some seed put on it a few days ago.... Not sure if the sod will smother the seed or how it would work. The Sod would be the same type of grass.

If you now have your yard graded as you want it, you should be able to roll it well to be sure you do not have any low spots, and lay your sod. Al
