Maple turned brown nearly overnight

I planted these 4 Autumn blaze maple trees last Sept. They were doing well and I've been watering regularly using gator tree watering bags. One of the 4 seemed to shrivel up and die in a matter of a few days. others are fine. No pests or bugs can be seen and leaves on other trees seem good. Any idea why or suggestions? Thank you for any help you can offer

I have in my lawn a great deal of course grass which has a broad blade. I do not want this grass in the lawn as I want the fine thin bladed grass. How do I get rid of the course grass ?

A year ago the local church put in a new windbreak of arborvitae. Four died over winter. The nursery that they came from didn't open this spring. I purchased replacements at Home Depot. The tag from HD said Smaragd thuja occidentalis. The nursery returned my call last week and said our original order was for Techneg arborvitae. Are these just trade names for the same type of tree, or are there differences. I can replace next spring with the same species. The nursery charged $40 per plant, the HD plants were $10. They were smaller, but healthy. Another question is how to tell if a watermelon is ripe. I put in mini plants this spring and have multiple melons on the vine. One is about basketball size and good dark green color. I've been fooled many times by the melons in the bins at Walmart. Finally, I planted a wisteria, about 4 years ago. This year it has grown vigorously, with multiple stems and about 5 feet of additional length this summer. But, still no flowers. On your radio show I heard you say only 1 variety will flower in Iowa; either a Kentucky or Tennessee variety. I thought that is what I ordered. Did I get the wrong variety, am I too far north, or does it need some special care to bloom?
