I would closely inspect the grass blades and compare the browning turf with the light green grasses. You may find that you have a mixture of cool season and warm season grasses. The cool season grasses go dormant when the weather warms and the warm season grasses will green up. In late summer the warm season grasses will go dormant and the cool season grasses will green up. Feeding and liming should green up those warm season grasses within another couple of weeks. Enjoy!
