Last year the developer planted laurel bushes between gardens as a boundary. Some of the bushes have lost all their leaves so are left with bare twigs sticking out of the ground. Other bushes have just continuously lost and grown leaves. The leaves turn brown, dry up and then drop off. The area is quite breezy. Could this be causing the problem?

Developers are not always the best gardeners Rolling Eyes the plants may have dried out before they were planted and probably never had a chance , this years dry weather caused a lot of stress and damage to all trees and shrubs .
I would say the main problem was drought . The only thing is to replace the damaged plants
