2. Place Organic Compost in bare spot and mix current loosen soil with new organic compost together.

3. Then Hand spread seed over bare spot.

3. Rake seed and ground/organic compost soil together to buried seed into the ground.

4. Take a shovel of organic compost and spread over the bare spot area. Covering any leftover seed that might be exposed.

4. Then wet down the the bare spot a good soaking.

It sounds like a lot of work....but it would go really quick...and I don't mind doing a little more work for better results.
That is very similar to what I do except I use a "Garden Weasel" type tool to work up soil and mix in compost and seed,,, instead of 3 pronged claw...
For this time of year I'm shortening the process to presoaked seed in a compost slurry and applying that to barespots...

I agree with your premise that the work involved is well worth the results... Good luck...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
