My Seeding Plan Massachusetts Opinions Needed

OK peeps after reading a ton of threads on different seeding ideas and techniques this is my plan for my lawn. I have not over seeded in 2 years because I knew I was getting irrigation done and it was probably going to get trashed. My front lawn is KBG sod and is about 6 years old the back is some kind of hydro seed which is about 5.5 years old. I am using Black Beauty Ultra as seed and scotts starter fert with scotts seed soil on the areas that need complete seeding. The irrigation guys really did a number on my lawn.

Dethatch entire lawn

Use Billy Goat vacuum to remove any loose clippings raking did not remove

Cut lawn to 1.5 inches

Use Bluebird aerator to prepare lawn for seed

DO NOT REMOVE PLUGS?

Seed with Black Beauty Ultra

SHOULD I APPLY AT SEEDING RATE INSTEAD OF OVERSEED RATE?

Thin areas get Scotts seeding soil

Spread Scotts Starter Fert over entire lawn

Water first thing morning then short blast mid afternoon to keep seed moist.

Temps here in Mass are about mid to high 60 in the day mid to low 40s at night.

IS THAT TOO MUCH WATER?


Any advice is appreciated I am hoping to get the best results for my limited experience.
