The best way to 'understand' anything,,, is to be able to understand the basic principles of an issue...

The Simple Basic Concepts Are:
The seed has to soak up water... the seed has to receive air... the seed may or may not dry out a few times before it is ready to germinate... grass seed puts out a root 'first' so it may germinate on the surface of the ground, but is generally better to have 'cover'...

From that basic information one may understand this scenario:
Seed can settle down under the dead brown grass clippings and germinate into those dead brown grass clipping and grow,,, but if not then you may have to scrape up the clippings , sow your seed,, and put the clippings back down...

Lots of variations can be undertaken as long as you stick to the basic principles of sowing seed...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
