Not sure how to care for these bushes…
I have a new home and I am unsure how to care for some of the bushes that are on the grounds. I'm attaching pictures. The hydrangea looks like it might have a blight on it. Also...the Japanese maple looks funny as well..but maybe that's because of the weather change with fall coming? (I live in New Jersey). I'm unsure what the bushy plant is and how to prune it. Also...my grass has creeping charlie...which is spreading all over my grass plot. yikes! ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

You can use a post-emergent herbicide on the creeping charlie in your grass. It can be very invasive.
the Japanese maple looks like it has some leaf scorch. Increasing the water for a while should help.
The hydrangea looks like it has a fungal leaf spot disease. You can treat that with a fungicide.
The other photo is so close I can't tell if it's a shrub or tree but it's a lovely evergreen. Generally they are low maintenance.
