I don't have the nicest yard, but am always trying to improve it. Historically, I overseed in the Spring. This year I think I might try something different: overseed before Winter, and not even rake it in. Then I'm thinking in the Spring it'll be all set to go (& hopefully grow). I'm sure some of you have tried this before

Seed must come in contact with the soil. Mow your grass short and make sure the leaves are raked and get the seed worked into the soil maybe just driving your mower around.

I seed in the fall, bout mid Sept., I might have to water at first if the weather is dry.
But usually the cooler weather, less sun keeps the soil moist.
I had good germination and already the spots I seeded have filled in nicely and will be really good come end of May.

I use a mix of Fescues only, they are a cool season grass.

As a lawn maintenance professional I recommend waiting until soil temps reach about 60 degrees in the spring and use an aerator or slice seeder to increase ground contact. Then about 2 weeks after fermentation you can put down preemergent herbicide for weed control. The next best would be to wait u til next fall late August/ early September.

I've never heard of a slice seeder

Get a soil test. Lime and fertilize as needed. Plugging helps also.
