I have a brother that lives in San Antonio, and has bought a home with bermuda grass in the yard. He says he has a problem with the grass always appearing brown, and that the majority of the houses in the area having the same type grass, and the same problem. I know this isn't much to go on, but does anyone have an idea as to what may be causing this?

Thanks in advance.

We use hybred Bermuda lawn out here and you have to fertilize it with a high nitrogen fertilizer--20-5-10-- is what we use. Hope this helps

He's probably just not mowing often enough. Bermuda has a tendancy to look brown if to much is cut off at one time.
 
Being somewhat familiar with soil structure in Texas, and being even more familiar with the poor construction techinques-
I'd say your problem is associated with a decent turf attempting to be grown on insufficient soil.
I'll bet you your brother lives in a tract home subdivision?
Telll your brother to aerate his lawn in three directions following a good soaking rain (or soak the yard with the irrigation system), then topdress with dillo dirt or similar material.
