Okay so in front of our office building is a row of boxwood hedges… some have random spots that are dying… how can i prevent this and why would it be doing that? The spots are not consistent with too much sunlight exposure… please help! Thanks!

    I see some yellowing or, “oranging” if you will, on the left side of the plant. Okay so, from your description, this could be a symptom of Volutella leaf blight. See this link
    Another link shows better closeup shots
    To get eyes on your problem contact a local lawn/shrub care specialist or cut a branch and take it by your Dekalb Co.UGA extension service office.
