    Some of the grass grows in brown along with green grass. I typically see it with fescue. It is just scattered blades, not sections or spots. I cut between 3 and 3.5", I was thinking that maybe the height and some of the grass was laying over and getting a bit sun burnt, or it needs to be aerated because it is choking a bit? They all have the lawn fertilized and have sprinklers and I sharpen my blades every day.

    Anybody know why some of the grass blades do not grow in green?

    Is the grass especially springy when you step on it? You might be seeing a thick layer of thatch
