Last summer I did a patch of lawn about 3000 sq ft where I removed 20 spruce trees. Stumps removed. After that I used my york rake to rough up and smooth the area. Spread about 1" of fresh loam, some hand raking, spread fertilizer, had it hydro seeded. I did not roll the fresh area. Loam should be loose to allow water and seed penetration. Plenty of watering and about three weeks it looked great. Cost for the hydro seeding at $300.00 plus about $100 for the loam. Hydro seeding has plenty of seed and a degradable paper binder to stop the seed from blowing away of drying out.
Going to do another section soon, about the same area.
Another option is to rent a thatcher/re seeder. It scourers the lawn, embedding the seed about 1/2 to 1" deep.
