No, you have to prepare the soil to receive the seed. Otherwise, most will
just wash away. If the soil isn't tough, scratch it with a bow rake first.
Then tamp the soil lightly after seeding. Then lightly water is without
disturbing the soil surface late in the evening hours.
If using strictly your hand, go get a bucketful of sand to practice with
first. Idea is to uniformly spread the sand or seed.

To grow grass from seed, you typically need to do more than just water
in once a day. Especially if you're trying to do it in summer, which
is the absolute worst time. You need to keep the surface constantly
damp, which in full sun can mean watering 4 times a day. Applying a
light cover, like hydraulic mulch which would be good for this app, is
a big help.
