Pittosporum near black walnuts

We are considering planting some pittosporum as a privacy hedge in a 50 ft area between 2 old black walnut trees. Would they tolerate 1) the Juglone and 2) the partial shade (about 4 hrs of sun per day)

Dying Lilac Bushes

The first 20 feet on one end of a 50 yard row of mature lilacs bushes started to brown up in June, with leaves dying. Please see pictures. We planted these lilacs 25 years ago and have never seen them brown up and die in the mid summer like this. Lack of moisture isn't the issue. We also planted a new lilac bush among the dead growth, hoping it would fill in a gap we had. That wasn't a good idea obviously, because it too is showing brown, dead leaves. Looking at the pictures, can you diagnose this, or do we need an arborist to visit and confirm the disease? Thanks!

Rose droppings

I’ve been cutting roses and putting in vase on white windowsill inside kitchen. Plenary of light in afternoons. I notice a day or so later little black specs of something in window sill. What could they be? Bigger than, say, black pepper. They resemble seeds as they are elongated in shape. Pic taken from 3” above.

Roots growing near foundation of house

My neighbor has a big maple tree in his front yard and the roots are now getting close to or might even be touching the foundation under our garage (see Picture 1). Some of the roots are above ground and visible (see Picture 2). Is this going to be a bad thing for the foundation? If yes, what can be done about it? Thanks Milind
