Comments: I Fought the Lawn...

Been there, done that, got the blisters to prove it.
I've since decided that, if it's green, it's lawn.

Give up on grass; the soil here is too acidic and clay-ee to support it. However, now's the time to load up the 'fertilizer sprinkler' thingee on wheels with sulpher instead. This will promote moss growth, which is a two-fer: green, no mowing necessary.

Nobody said the price for sweat equity and curb appeal was free.

Must have been some pretty hefty rocks to break off the tines.
I've had to do what you're trying but in a soil that wasn't quite so rock strewn nor clayey. Ended up letting it revert to moss after spreading enough lime to make it look like it snowed. (Heavy rain washed most of it away.) Shade also from some massive oaks (hence the acid soil) contributed to that decision.I felt like I had "wasted" two summers.
