Bearberry Shrubs

I have bearberry on the hill on my property, it’s in sandy soil and I haven’t done much with it over the years (it’s about 1o years old now) has spread beautifully but I’ve noticed in the past two years a lot of dead spots. What do I do about this, clip it back, or what?

You can clip it back with no problem. I would also add wettable sulfur into the soil around it. This sounds like it may be coming down with an infection. Wettable sulfur will help treat this.
