On my farm there isn't any difference and that is because I would not let my City Slicker DH plant fancy grass in the yard area. Our yard is part of the original pasture, therefore identical to what the horses eat.
"Lawn Grass", IMO, means when somebody has gone to the trouble and expense of making a very pretty yard for all the passers-by to comment on, while not giving a single thought as to how much starch & sugar it will shove down a horse's throat.
Regarding "grass clippings", ditto it is not good to rake up any sort of grass clippings (ex-pasture or otherwise) and feed it to a horse; especially if it's had time to ferment in the warmth of the sun.
