I am sure you know that muscadine vines are shallow rooted and spread far 
and wide rather rapidly. Twenty  feet is  wide is almost double as most I've 
seen are planted 12 feet or so apart.  If it does not interfere with your 
mowing, then you must think as to whether you need to do any spraying of the 
muscadines. I used to not do any, but now I have Japanese beetles so I spray 
with Sevin; which is very short residual so should not interfere with the 
asparagus picking. I do not know if you would ever use fungicides, but 
likely only for the ripening fruit so asparagus picking may be over by then. 
Somebody else may weigh in on this also.
I forget where you are located zone wise. Zone 8 may require more spay 
activity than zone 7 where I am.
