Boxwood Thinning

I’m very concerned about the health of my boxwoods. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated! For many years my boxwoods thrived; however, I fear I may have trimmed them at the wrong time of year in combination with a very tough winter. Currently, many of the outermost branches have very few leaves as well as a yellow tint. I’m hoping that water and proper fertilizer could help revive them. Thank you so much!
