Answer: Boxwoods require a well drained location, so you may need to create a slightly raised planting bed for the shrubs to prevent water collecting around them. (Poor drainage will cause root damage.) I would suggest you work with your local county extension to run some basic soil tests and determine the best way to amend and prepare your particular soil for growing boxwoods. A hedge is a long lived planting so it is worth preparing the soil correctly at the start.
