My yellow cedar has thrived over the last four years on my south facing deck. He gets a lot of light and water and my other evergreen also does well out there. However, this fall he started going yellow and now he looks pretty bad. I have no idea what his issue could be. Any ideas?

You are right, it doesn't look good. If you haven't repotted for 4 years, chances are the plant has become so rootbound that no moisture is making it into the center of the root ball.

I agree with Daisy. You should have re-potted it every 2 years IMHO
