What is the best way to re-seed a thin lawn area?

Mow the lawn a little lower than usual. Rake the lawn area to be seeded vigorously with an iron rake or a flexible leaf rake. As best you can, try to break into the soil. For larger areas you want to rent a power rake or a de-thatching machine. In any event you are attempting to establish a seed bed in loosened soil.
