Dethatching removes all the excess thatch that could block the new seeds from making good contact with the soil. Now that you've removed all that thatch you can simply broadcast your grass seeds and then water them in well. The water will push the seeds down to the soil surface where they will easily root. Best wishes with your lawn.
