Looks more like unintended overapplication rather than improper overlap. It's a pretty thin line. If you look at the first picture the dark green line starts close to the sidewalk on the right, pretty much where he would be doing a perimeter pass.

I know I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but when I see those thin green stripes one of two things happened IMO.
Like Raymond stated, it seems like if this was from fert then the spreader had a problem and was dumping fert straight down.
If the grass was already green then it would be from the pesticide being applied with too wide of spacing and missing a strip.
It seems to me though that the green stripes seem to be the same width everywhere, so I am going to say fert was falling straight down.
