    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...

    May be me on my phone but looks like both yards have brown patch in places as well.

    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
