I'm curious about something - you say you planted these shrubs in May, 2013, which would make it only 16 months in your garden, but the size they are suggests they're much older than that, so you maybe bought them as mature shrubs, is that correct? If you did, mature plantings often don't do so well, not having the same lively urge to grow as younger plants, ...

This is a long-shot, but it almost looks like it has been burned. Does that section of the brick get more sunlight throughout the day than where the other trees are? Are there buildings or trees partially shading the other trees? Is there a window that reflects light onto that spot for a period of the day? If so, it could be that the bricks there heated up ...
