Ground cover manzanita dying in patches

My Ground cover manzanita is dying (turning brown) in patches. It's been in the ground about 6 years. Can't recall which cultivar. What could be the problem?

More likely to be too little than too much water.

You need to give more information on how the plant is being cared for, the type of soil it is in, etc. Otherwise it is just a guessing game.
