Cherry Laurels leaves turning yellow :(

Hello folks, I wonder if anyone can give me some advice on my cherry laurels please....they were purchased and planted on the 20th April....they were lovely and green when planted but a month later they are turning yellow....I havent watered them much becuase the soil is quite moist, so much so that I have had a drainage system installed in the garden. I do feel that after I watered them about a week ago that the yellow has got worse. Another worry is that the gardener that I paid to plant them sawed off about 2-3 inches of root before planting....he said this would be good for them....please help!! :,(
For a plant that size, they should be planting them in with a decent size hole and possibly back filled with compost and grit added in to help keep the drainage good. Having said that, watering will need to be generous at this time of year, I would recommend a bucket for each shrub every week and increasing if it gets warmer in June.
