How do you get real green grass?

How do you get real green grass? I picked up two HOA's that are in bad shape. The grass is brown. How and where do I start?

What ever you do, dont let True green chem lawn near it, if you think its bad now im sure they will make it worse, hence the name tru-brown......but if the grass is dormant there is nothing you can do about it til the growing season comes around. But if its not, get your licence and start applications, good money in it.....Good luck!

Pray for rain - LOL - a little urea, or ammonia nitrate will kick start it however in the early spring.
