Is it normal for grass to turn brown in summer?

Is it normal for my lawn grass to turn yellow during the summer months? Is my lawn dead, or does it need more water?

Kentucky Bluegrass and other cool-season turf grasses will turn a brownish yellow color during the summer months. This is actually common. What your lawn is doing is sort of like hibernation. It is going dormant to survive the dry heat during the summer.
