If no grass came up at all, there is the distinct possibility that the seed was dead. If you have some left, shake a pinch on wet blotting paper on a saucer and see does it sprout.

The other possibility is over-watering. Spraying water with a hose dislodges the seeds and upsets their germination, but in this case, some of it will sprout.

Control the weeds by hoeing or with a spray and re-sow.
