Brown spots

I have brown patches in most of my non irrigated lawns that I fertilize. Customers seem to think its our service but I can see it in other lawns that we don't maintain. We service Chicago suburbs.

My thought is its stress from lack of water and poor mowing practices on the properties we don't completely maintain.

Thoughts

It's not grubs, dog pee or fert burn because it's on adjacent lawns we do not service. I'm thinking fungal with we do not have as part of our fert service.

seems to be brought out by the summer heat and drought conditions.

Whats to say it's not dog pee? The dog could be coming on their property and dumping too being you see it on adjacent properties. I do agree that it could be a fungus though.
