Putting the grass to bed, WET,, is the easiest mistake to avoid... Absolutely do NOT water in the evening!!! Fungus, fungus, fungus disease are the 3 major reasons why you never water in the evening... I'm surprised to hear that comment from 32vld...

Anyways, you never let leaves sit on the lawn more than 2 weeks, especially oak leaves, becuz they easily suffocate the grass... they should not be trapped in the turf to begin with...

Lawns can only take so much water, before the anaerobic conditions cause it to thin... stop over-watering and most of your thatch problems will evaporate...

I use both Milorganite and some synthetic if needed... Molasses to aid the digestion of the thatch and thereby enhancing the soil structure...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
