Fertilized Carrotwood Tree

I fertilized the backyard Carrotwood Tree with Osmocote and GroPower today.  I've continued to do approximately weekly deep watering of the tree to help it leaf out and get healthier.  Since the fall when the whole thing was looking pretty sorry, one side has leafed out but the other has not.  The side near the neighbors is the one struggling.  I've asked them if their watering/fertilizing/chemicals has changed in the last year, but they haven't really.  That side is harder for me to deeply water due to the slope of the land.  I wonder if it is just a water issue or if one of the main trunks is diseased.
