It's one thing to consider if you run into lawns that just don't breathe well... when getting paid to seed lawns, it is best to do it in the fall, but at the same time you may get lucky with new seed in the summer as long as there's some shade and enough moisture... I would experiment(on your own turf, or friends) with compost, sandy compost and dragging it altogether after aerating and see exactly what happens to the turf... that way as you gain confidence and experience you'll be able to counsel h.o.s adequately... compost is pretty expensive for most people to get excited about...
