Especially, when it will likely have some 'cide in it, which is never good for 'thriving' plants...

Most important for summer is don't mow it short enough for the sun to shine on the soil... even longer if you do not irrigate...

Milorganite shouldn't burn and may not even get used, if the conditions are too hot and dry...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
