Any idea how to save this boxwood, and get it back to looking full in the dead area? It’s of course right in front of the house. It was starting to die in this area late summer. It’s now early spring and obviously dead. The others look overall pretty healthy. Not too bad of winter snow and cold wise relative to the year prior. They do get small spider mites (I think - tiny that create fine webs) on them in the summer - used Sevin on them. There was also a rabbit going under them for awhile, maybe the rabbit chewed on a branch?

any thoughts or insight how to proceed would be helpful.
Thank you

I would cut the dead part out all the way back to live wood. Seal the cuts. This will allow sunlight to get into the adjacent branches so they can grow and fill the gap.

Boxwood don’t like saturated roots. If root rot is the cause of the dead branches, there isn’t much you can do to save it.
