Q.Cedar Hedge Maintenance… Did I Screw Up?
a month ago I got right in there and cleaned out all the dead cedar leaves from right inside the trees. Then I topped up the soil with peat moss, and have kept them fairly well watered. Now the trees are showing brown dying leaves on the outside, just on so.e tips, but it’s fairly uniform. Did I do something wrong? If so, how do I fix?

It looks like very vigorous, new growth. This can appear discolored, but it will return to green.
Likely, this just got a little too much attention all at once. I would recommend giving the shrub slow, steady care throughout the year.
Because this is a Thuja, it will have the same care as its cousins, which are kept tall. This article will help:
