Laurel not growing


Our laurel hedges have been in the ground for over 4 years now but have barely grown at all. They were put in by the house builders. Our next door neighbours had their laurel hedging planted at the same time and it’s well established now. Ours always looks like it’s being eaten by something but we can’t find anything on it. We have also lost a couple over the years. We did try putting some chicken manure around them a couple of years ago and they grew a little bit for a while but it didn’t last. The plants are next to a pavement and I suspect the soil doesn’t go down very far. Is there anything else we can try? Is it worth me trying to take them up and improve the soil and replant them or should I just start again?
