Spring is fine, too if irrigation or weather is adequate.
Power rake or aeration, before seed is a good idea. Add starter fertilizer or organic starter product.
Not sure if it would work...BUT...
you could try adding clover seed to the lawn. Clover provides nitrogen fertilizer continuously; its a legume. Naturally there are a few white flowers for a couple weeks in May.
also think about black medic--a clover-like legume. Its an annual and the flowers are yellow and tiny--less noticeable than clover.
Overseeding is always good
Laughed out loud a bit at the clover and black medic thing though, no offense! I would readily do something like that with my own lawn. However, my clients are still high end residentials who demand uniformty in their lawns. We spot spray weeds if necessary and pull TONS of them.
