You can always tell which people have never put down compost for seeding and the quality of the soil(hence the plants) thereafter...

Profitability is definately simpler with a slit-seeder than bringing out compost and spreading it around... the expense tied to compost is huge for some lawnsand not everyone can come close to affording it...

For Spring seeding, compost over seed would win hands downagainst the slit-seeder... germination under compost in the Spring would be so much faster...

Just a few considerations in regards to seeding methods... it doesn't help to just discount one method/preference over another...
"All or Nothing",,, "One Size Fits All",,,,and "More is Better"... have no place in the thinking of professional horticulturalists...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
