The idea that grass can not establish well enough to endure the Summer heat is dependant on a number of factors... just as the emergence of CG is dependant on a number of factors... the basic fundamental concept that tie those 2 ideas together is water and temperature control...

I would never willfully deny a client the seeding of bare ground in the Spring, Summer or Fall... I've seeded at all those times and only had a problem on lawns that were chemically crippled with pre-M... I have only one way of dealing with CG and Pre-M is not that way...

The basic fundamental principle from which all other considerations stem is moisture and temperature control... there really is the fault of the mower more than the irrigation,,, but even if mowing ceases,,, the irrigation may be required in order to ensure the survival of the baby seedlings...

Compost covered seed for bare spots,,,worked in with a garden weasel type tool is always better than dust, mud or CG during the Summer...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
