Hello @plants I've got a Japanese maple that seems a little sad. Among beautiful green leaves are some curled brown patches. It's been a fairly dry year, but I've watered in monthly. My current thought is that the gravel which has, up until today, been covering the root base up to the trunk is suffocating it. I'm planning on scooting the gravel back a few feet. Any other ideas on what might be hurting my friend?
