I live 2 miles into Pennsylvania, just north of Hagerstown, Maryland...

I live 2 miles into Pennsylvania, just north of Hagerstown, Maryland (Washington County) and was, in fact, a Washington County resident for many years. My current home is now 11 years old and my yard is the same age--a bluegrass mix that has done very well to this point. This Fall, after a consistently wet summer, we first had a mini-drought into early October and the grass began to burn out a bit, though not as bad as would be typical in July most years etc.... . With the recent 6-7 inches of rain, it has snapped back nicely, but I just discovered several patches of brown grass, that I by accident discovered is most likely due to a grub issue in these areas. It peels back easily and has not snapped back like the rest of the yard. I just completed reading a variety of recommendations on-line, and most of those appear to involve applying some type of Grub Control in the Spring or Summer months. I can do that, but it hasn't been real clear in my research if there is anything I can do now (October 21st...). I have a 3 acre plus yard, and only several smaller patches appear to be infested---so my main question for you is 1) is there anything I can do now?? and 2) is there anything you particularly recommend for grub control in our area and my relative situation...?? Thanks for your help!

My large planters are 3' high and 20 feet long with wood dividers every 5 feet. . The original homeowner built them for bulbs. 50% of this space is unused, and I would love to plant vegetables. Problem: the wood is treated. Is there anyway to line the planter with plastic, rubber, tin, or something so that I can plant these? Unfortunately these are behind the house where I can't enjoy the blooms.

Plant/weed identification

There is this weed/plant that grows in abundance around my house, and I'd like to know what it is. It grows in clumps and the leaves are relatively small, each one about 2-3 inches long, but sometimes a little longer. Could you help me identify it?

English Walnut tree problem

We have moved into this house just over a year ago and with it we have inherited three English Walnut trees. I'm told they are about 10 years old. Last year, just after the tree had started leafing out, the leaves shriveled up, turned a dark color and fell off. This year the leaves just started to open up, everything was looking fine on Saturday, now it's Tuesday and about 50% of the new leaves are starting to shrivel up and turn a dark color. When I feel the leaves, they are crunchy. Is this some sort of disease? Or is it a lack of water? Right now the lawn goes right up to the trunks of the trees. I am in the process of scraping away the sod so I can put a mulch down to help preserve moisture. Am I doing the right thing? Is there something else I should be doing for my trees as well? Thank you for taking the time to help me with my problem! -Bethany
