What is this nylon mesh for?

Midlife | May 29, 2013 11:02 AM

We're renting a home that has a VERY small grass area in the back yard. Because there's no sprinkler system in that area previous tenants didn't water enough so there are open spots in the grass that are now revealing a fine nylon 'mesh' that wax apparently laid down under the grass. It had large (1") spacing but I think it may have been used to keep grass seed on place whenever it was originally planted. Is that correct?

At this point the mesh just gets in the way when we have to rake anything in that area. Any reason not to just cut it out? We MAY try to re-seed those places but will more likely use plugs from more healthy areas. Hope the pic attached is visible.
