Tall grass keep a lot of shade and hold moisture at its base for long periods during the day, especially 6-8 inches tall... too tall for a lawn... the grass flops over and kills its neighbors, creating patches of suffocated dying grass all over the place... I've seen it happen a lot over the years...
Next thing to look closely at,,, is soil drainage and retention...
