See my thread about seed on April 26. It works very well--UNTIL--they don't water and the crabgrass sets in.
Be sure at least one guy waters so you can point to it and say--"This is what you should have done for a good result."
Say, "This mess isn't my fault!"--they will ignore you. Get your money up front.

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage

dormant seeding

In zone 5 we always have stopped seeding lawns after the first week in Oct. It is too unpredictable if you go past that date.
