I wouldn't touch them. They will most likely not survive. I'd give them a price to purchase and plant new ones as well as removal of existing boxwoods.

Those are nice, hope to get one next year. With the rock hard clay around here they would come in very handy.

you must consider the conditions. if direct sunlight makes sense. if it is a shady area, they should have a good chance to live. boxwoods have long horizontally growing shallow roots. they are not best for planting near house due to the roots. they are native to European forests (meaning the grow in shade).
good luck

There is a right and wrong way to translocate living plants and it includes follow-up maintenance,,, even during cooler times of the season... I never t-plant in July-August 15 either,,, even here in the North Woods...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
