If matching the grass is a issue for you, spray the whole lot off, rotarvat, de stone & re seed.
If not, I'd guess at it being a fairly standard amenity type grass, prep & seed the bare patch & top dress the rest with a little top soil & seed.

Because the chances are the lazy b*****ds that preped it previously couldn't be arsed & is likley full of stones..I prep it the same as I would if I was turfing, gives the seed a good bed of tilf.
Don't tell me you just rotarvate seed then roll?

Dont do gardening , was just wondering as on a larger scale (reseeding a field) stones are said to help with drainage

It's only the top inch or so that you de stone. So won't effect the drainage either way.

Buy your grass seed from a professional place or golf course dealer..Just ask for a fairway grade seed.. Please dont buy quick fix type seeds as they are often agricultural fodder types and are not good at being cut a lot and dont form a mat. Best time now is end of August and into september for seeding,then leave cutting until next spring..
