My grass has yellow looking stripes in it after I mow and they end up turning brown, what is it?

Yellow Stripes After Mowing?

If you have yellow stripes in your yard after you have mowed, you are mowing your lawn too short. Scalping a lawn exposes the lowest portion of grass blades to sunlight and it burns them. The grass will first turn yellow, then brown and die. To avoid this problem simply raise your lawn mower blades.
