Default Ficus Standard

I have received a pair of Ficus Standard as a gift
and I put them on each side of the front door of my home (in the porch).
Unfortunately they are loosing their leaves slowly.
The porch is sunny (but no direct sunlight)
What can I do to prevent it from dying ?
I have watered them regularly and added quality slow release fertiliser.
Please help

Default Ficus Standard

Hi,
Ficus are the worst things to plant in the garden,especially near the house
as it is part of the Fig family.The roots are so invasive, they go through
the concrete slab and water pipes.
I would dig them up and plants them into pots(if they are still alive). tlc
will bring them back!
