This bed was in a low spot and they were watering every other day. I think we found the culprit.
one of my customers has Periwinkles in his beds that he never waters. They only get rain water. They are the biggest periwinkles you will ever see. Mine at my house do fine with frequent watering but they are in a raised bed that drains well.

We have a couple different properties that is having problems with limbs in the shrubs dying back. It is just making an impossible maintenance problem for us. Any suggestions?

Check for bagworms. Junipers are bad about that.

Best advice. Jerk em out and put in anything but junipers. Will always have bagworms. And sometimes they just randomly loose the top out of them. (More upright varieties)

My customer has a cedar (assuming same family) that lost the top out of it. Is there anything you can do to fix it? She was trying to train a new central leader but I don't think that's going to end up right.

No bag worms....likely red spider but needchemical bad for spray. This hotel has about 100 of them and it just ruins the looks.

This is one of those beds that will be low water use. These are
getting more popular in our area. They take a lot of care to
keep them blooming. This one just went in.

I am impressed with these guys who can take a bunch of different shapes and sizes of native stone and build a nice wall. This is a $600,000 wall.
Will take pictures when done. Seven guys....two drill into stone to anchor in the back.
