Hard to see in the photos, I guess, but his grass is never below 4". He may let it get to 6" and then cut it. But, he mows "high" enough. Always has.

Sorry I didn't take better pics, agrostis.

You have a wide range of greenish yellow pastels on that lawn, so much so that I would venture a guess that there are several varieties involved here... patchwork overseeding from whatever seed was on sale over the years,,, would be my guess...

As always I would say look at the soil and see what has gone wrong there... how does that soil handle the water/fert? how is air/water ratio?? how deep is the mass of fibrous roots???
I would at least core the rootzone and checkit out...

What makes you think there's brown patch in those photos?

I suppose there could be (and if you were on the lawn, you could probably find some grass blades with lesions), but I couldn't see any from the photos.

Remember, not every off color area in a lawn is brown patch
