The lawn has turned all brown (yellow)!

I noticed that during this winter, that my lawn has almost completely turned all brown (yellow), as well as that of most of my neighbors. Some of them still have green lawns though.
Does this mean that my lawn is officially dead, or is it "hibernating"? If it is the latter, does it still need to be watered every other day during the cold winter months (when it never gets above 60 degrees)?

All of this really depends upon where you are. In the northeast lawns of zoysia grass turn golden brown pretty early and stay that way until spring.

Probably the grass that "yellows" in winter is seasonal grass. I have several neighbors that have yellow or brown patches that turn green during the spring. No need to water this grass. I overseed each year with fescue and my lawns stay green all year, with the exception of an occasional summer draught.
