We have the tree wall around the house but recently some of the trees started losing their leavesĀ and now we have holes in a tree walls. We moved in this house three months ago, and the tree wall was gorgeous. South Florida is a great place to grow any plants.

It can be difficult to diagnose issues with a Weeping Fig, due to the fact that they leaf drop no matter the issue.
I do think it could be a watering issue. They should have evenly damp conditions and not soggy soil. If it has been dry and with the summer heat you may just need to increase watering.
Inspect the plants carefully for any signs of insects. Neem Oil is good treatment for all insects.
