My landscaping is dying

I have burning bushes, a Japanese maple, and a hydrangea that are dying from the top down. They have been in the ground for over a year. It started with the hydrangea. The leaves turn yellow at the top and it works it's way down. The leaves turn brown, dry up and fall off. Could this be a parasite or fungus? Is there any way to save them?

Sod Question

My city re-sodded my backyard in May after bulldozing half of it for a long-term pipe-laying project. Two months after the sod was laid, it's very obvious where the sod lies over the construction-impacted vs. non-impacted area. I'm assuming the city went cheap and provided little or no topsoil beneath the impacted area (yes, they've been subject to equal watering and fertilizing). So my question is, can I expect this demarcation to lessen over time? Will this even out? Or is this going to be more or less permanent? I'm trying to figure out how big of a stink to make with the city at this point, but I don't know how big of a deal this is (I have not yet signed the release they've asked for).

lilac leaf damage

Can you help me determine what is wrong & whether the shrub can be saved? This lilac was planted last summer and seemed happy & healthy until a few weeks ago when brown spots appeared on part of the plant. They have spread rapidly in the last 10 days. We had difficulty with a maple tree in this same area of the yard a few years ago and it eventually died after a similar leaf issue.

Flowering crab problem

Hello- I have a flowering crab in my backyard that is dropping some leaves this summer. The tree still looks full and green at this point but I am concerned about the dead leaves because this is new. Also, the leaves on the tree have spots. What is this? And, what should I do for it? Thanks.

Frustrated about peaches

We are picking peaches but they are mainly green and hard on one side and rotting on the other. I assume this is Brown rot. They also have peach scab. But what I've read says that this should only effect the skin and the peach flesh is fine. This is not the case in ours, as they are hard under the peach scab. We have sprayed copper sulfate before bloom and then neem oil routinely. We are extremely frustrated. Any suggestions?

wild ginger - not as healthy

Hello and thank you! My wild ginger plants are looking less and less healthy. There is a brownish tinge around the edge. I eventually want them to grow and replace a large part of my lawn. I am not sure how much watering is best these days. Should soil be damp an inch below? I also had gotten some wild ginger from a neighbor and all of those died. Thanks for sharing your wisdom! Have a wonderful day.

cucumber plant

Hello and thank you! More and more yellow spots are showing up on this cucmber plant. I have been pulling the lower leaves which have more spots. Now spots are showing up on the upper leaves as well. Should I pull out the entire plant? Or will it be ok to have it keep growing? I do not want it to get a virus or contaminate my soil for the next years. Thank you

How to treat grape vines infested with Japanese beetles?

Hello, The grape vines overgrown on the fences that surround our yard are infested with Japanese beetles. They have moved from grape vines to our rose bushes. What is the best way to treat? I've tried picking them off, but there are hundreds. Is there a safe chemical? Do we cut down the vines first and then treat or treat and then cut down the vines? We have a dog. We have some herbs, tomatoes, and flowers growing as well. This is my first encounter with Japanese Beetles. I would appreciate any specific information you can give me. Thank-you, Teresa Whitman
