    Explain this a little better.

    Your lawns aren't getting any water?

    Then it's the lack of water.

    I don't quite get your post.

    I have a couple that are turning brown as though they were going dormant too. We're loosing a lot of leaves from trees too. I suspect the browning is just the Poa dying off for the summer but I can't explain the leaves.

    You could dye the lawns - Lesco sells a dye used for turf coloration. As I understand it though, it will stain concrete.

    I have having quite a few lawns that are starting to not be so green but hopefully we will get some rain. Have you done soil tests on the lawns that are turning brown?
