Drive is not a pre-emergent. Definitely use Tupersan (also called Siduron). It stops crabgrass germination but not turfgrass germination. Apply when forsythia is blooming or use growing degree days for timing of application. There should be no problem having a thick healthy lawn by July. If you use a seed mix with more than 25% perennial rye you will end up with almost 100% perennial rye so just use a perennial rye blend. Stress the watering issue with the customer. One possibility is to rent a temporary irrigation system like they use for newly seeded lawns. Or offer to set him (or her) with some sprinklers and a programmable timer (about $35 at Home Depot). You will probably need 2 timers for 11000 sq ft.
