You didn't identify the plant so I'm not sure I can provide much information in the way of control. White powdery substance could be a fungal disease called powdery mildew; white spots on leaves could indicate scale or mealybugs; brown spots could be insect or fungal disease. Submit a new question to this forum with more details and we can be more helpful.

Best wishes with your landscape.
