Brown leaves on hydrangea

I have 3 hydrangea bushes I planted last fall and one bush is now getting burnt looking edges around some of the leaves. I spread aluminum sulfate around the bushes and wondering if I might have gotten some on the leaves. What else would cause this problem.can I cut off brown leaves? Another question...any idea what this plant is (2nd photo) tall stems of delicate pink flowers coming from green plants. Hoping it's not a weed since I like it! Thank you Kathy Mathews

Pruning a Chinese Lilac Tree

My lilac tree has gotten too large from lack of pruning. How far back can I prune it? When is the best time to prune? I believe one time to prune is after the flowers have bloomed and died (mid June)? I did prune some around July 10 this year, but want to cut it back even more.

terrible invasive grass

The below grass has taken hold of my lawn in the past month and a half. it is very quick growing and spreads faster than you can keep up with pulling it. It is lighter than normal grass and has thicker leaves. It grows taller and faster than the rest of the lawn, I had used a grass seed for infill that I purchased from home depot and think it may have been included in that seed. I need the best and strongest thing to kill it before it spreads to my neighbors yards

Preparing an area for planting blueberries

We have an area on the south side of our house with slightly raised beds (about 5 to 6 inches above ground level); soil in the beds is more silty/sandy and drains well. I planted a cover crop of red clover in the beds last fall, and it survived the winter. After I turned it under in the spring, I planted annual flowers in the beds; they do not need any fertilizer. How should I amend the soil this fall if I want to plant 3 smaller variety blueberry bushes next spring? The space would be suitable for bushes that get no larger than 3 feet in any direction.
