Should I do any prep work now or in Spring ?

3 months ago did a major job in the backyard.... leaving a large part of my lawn completely "destroyed" .
SO far just dumped a fresh top soil and re-graded the area....
Of course it is way too late for seeding grass so my question is;
Should I do anything now, like spread weed killer, any special preen ?
Or should I just wait for early Spring and only then start applying products a few weeks before it gets warm and before I seed a new lawn ?

If you recommend Option 2 - is there anything I should do for the Winter?
Just top soil for 3-4 months...I think it would cause some erosion and possibly it's not good for my house as this large area with no grass would be subject to quick water penetration + washing out all the nutrients etc ??
Is that even a real concern ?

Appreciate all inputs.
thank you and Happy New Year !

No recommendations one way or another ??

I guess just wait for early Spring - then do all the treatment and seed the new lawn once it warms up ?

First of all, update you profile with state, helps to understand.

Just sit back and watch the fire in the fireplace, nothing your going to do till spring, but dont jump out there too early, need warm ground temps before fertilizers and seed will do anything!
