Leveling my Lawn. Just Overseeded.

My Backyard was a absolute nightmare. Just purchased my first house and wanted to get the lawn cleaned up. Grass hadnt been edged in years and overgrew my curbs and pathways. Backyard was full of holes from the previous owners dog and i decided to put down a new layer of top soil to fill and level things out a bit. After Shoveling / Distributing 6 Tons of topsoil i put down some KBG Seed. I should have looked a bit more into my current grass before i seeded but ill see what happens. I think i have Zoysia Grass underneath that was mostly dead. Should i use some fertalizer immediatly or wait on the seeds to sprout a bit. Hoping i can at least mow the lawn without worrying about breaking a ankle or scalping a section.

how much zoysia do you think you had? Unless you rip it out or few apps of kill all if lucky. its only going to come back once you start feeding it. Everyone laughs at zoysia in jeresy but it grows very well depending where your located. I've removed all my zoysia only to have it come back 5 years later and that's with trying to control it.
Might be worth getting bunch of zoysia plugs fill in some spots. Should take a year to fill in fairly nice but worth it. There's a nice zoysia farm off exit 17 on 295. Guys little crazy but very smart. I cut my zoysia 1 inch maybe twice a month with some growth regular down.
