Hissing of the summer lawns

Although there's no drought - last week brought thunderclouds and mid-afternoon downpours ever other day, the greenery is beginning to lose its mid-May hues and yellow tinges are beginning to appear. In the picture below, the yellowing edges of the lawn are evident. The answer - lawn sprinklers. Early today, our children returned hot and tired after a bike ride, and refreshed themselves by lying on the lawn under the sprinklers. In the evening the water brings relief - there was no rain today, despite the magnificent clouds brewing up to the east of us.
