A 'Garden Weasel' is in most box stores along with other garden tools, hand tools... it has a 4' handle with tined wheels at the end that stir up the soil as it rolls back and forth...
A Grass Stitcher looks and functions, similar but is made for lawns, instead of gardens, so it does not tear up the existing grass as much as a Weasel might...

The Weasel is about $20 and the Stitcher may be double that and might possibly be ordered from one of the sponsors on this site... grass seed does fine if bedded down in 1/4" of loosened soil, and even better if there are dead grass clippings or compost involved with that spot...

So neither of these tools require much labor but does require some... it goes quickly once you get the hang of it...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
