Lemon tree leaves- bleached spots

Asked May 28, 2016, 11:01 AM EDT

We just had landscaping completed in our dirt backyard in Arizona. Planted a lemon tree. It's been 3 weeks but leaves have bleached yello spots and it is spreading. I backed off from watering and its every third day for 45 minutes now. Could you help me understand what is going on with leaves? Thanks

I recommend that you get in touch with your County Extension Master Gardeners to help diagnosis your lemon tree problem http://extension.arizona.edu/ask-master-gardener-landscape-and-garden-help-maricopa-county
