    My lawn started this week to get some brown grass.
    All though still looks fine, I think it has a problem and I would kindly appreciate if you can offer me an opinion on what this would be, based on the pictures below.

    Thank you !

    Don't worry about it .... and sharpen your mower blade(s)

    thank you very much for your answers
    regarding the blade, actually I just did that as I saw some shredded grass there although I think the reasons was that the grass was wet during the last mowing

    I understand it might be a fungus, but I've never put fungicide over my lawn and I would not do it unless I really really have to, and I would try something organic first
    what should I try organic ?
    from the pictures, does it look like a fungus on the blades, can you see any signs ?

    but do you think that there is also a chance that bad care practices might be the reason ?
    for example:
    - too much or too less fertilizer
    - to much water, or too less water
    - watering when it is to warm, during hot period of the day ?
    - mowing when is too hot or when the grass is very wet

    such practices could lead to this ?

    thank you very much for your answers

    There are a number of reasons to never mow wet grass and shedding the leaves is only one...

    Compost with poultry manure.

    Cannot say with any certainty, but I don't see anything to worry about right now.

    Can't say without knowing your soil fertility and what is being applied

    Can't say without knowing regional environment, soils, rooting depth

    That is just wasting water if possible.

    Shouldn't do either.
