This is normally an indicator that the lawn has gone dormant, which indicates that it may not be getting enough water. Consider increasing the water.

If you think the lawn may be getting enough water, you may be over fertilizing, which is burning the lawn. Back off some on the fertilizer if you feel the lawn is watered well enough.
