Have you pruned them to that shape? That's a rather unusual shape for a boxwood.

How tall/large were the boxwoods when you planted them and how tall are they now?

Soil type can affect how most anything grows. I have poor soil [mostly slate rock] and had a 20 yr old bradford pear [snow storm knocked it down] that was only about half the size of some bradford pears that were planted down in the valley [mostly clay] Might be wise to have your soil tested and amend accordingly.
