    It's pachysandra and possibly dying off from the drought conditions?
    Are they watering?

    k thanks for the fast response,

    this pic is of there walnut trees, they are right on the street, there niegbors have them and there all dropping at the same time, she was worried becasuse they seem like there dropping more nuts sooner than they did last year, also, the town just installed new curbing on that side of the street.

    Those look to be horse chestnut trees, it is normal for them to lose their leaves a bit earlier than other trees, but again, the drought is effecting them as well.

    Can you check the leaves? see if the margings of the leaves are drying out. If the margings are dead it is most likely drought.

    We are getting a lot of early fall drop mostly from the drought. Its not going to be a pretty fall this year.....

    On the ivy, is there a gutter directly above them? Saw the same thing happen from the overflow of a cloged gutter that was spilling on top of the plants.
