Bradford Pear Leaves are Turning Dark Brown and Falling off

The leaves on my Bradford Pear tree are turning dark brown almost black and falling off. This is happening all over the tree, not just in one spot. It must be some kind of disease. How can I treat it and what is the name of the disease ? I think it may have started at the end of the season last year because some of the leaves that fell in October were more shriveled looking than normal. Thank you for whatever info you can provide.

Black Barrel Compost Container

I have a six-sided composter that is divided into two sides internally—one for cooking and one for finished compost. It has an opening to put in fresh waste and take compost out. It is on a stand, so I can spin it. The problem is that the composter is molding inside, and the dust is nasty. I am mixing Colorado dirt with leftover vegetables and fruits from the kitchen. I add occasional water. How should I proceed? I opened the composter to the air today. Am I doing this right, and do I need to start all over?

White snails

I have a dead patch of St. Augustine grass (about 5x5) that has been dead for awhile. In the past couple of days there are now a lot of dead white snails. The grass died suddenly and the rest of my yard is mostly green and healthy except for another isolated patch of dead grass. I haven't been able to get anything to grow back except for a few blades here and there. I don't see any snails in the second patch of dead grass. Do the snails indicate anything either about the soil or about why the grass died?
