Need help with plant rehab!

5 years ago

Hey y'all. I'm new to this site. I came in search of advice.

I've never been a gardener. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'd like to learn.

The back story- My fiancé and I have recently moved into a beautiful mid-century modern home. Once upon a time, the yard was beautifully landscaped. However, that is no longer the case. The most recent owner allowed the yard and flower beds to "go". Everything is overrun with vines, literally choking the life out of the shrubs. We've started working to tame the jungle we have growing outside.

Now to my first question- we've found a number of holly bushes that have been cut back, basically to nubs. It looks like someone was trying to kill them. However, there is (a little) growth on quite a few of these. What can I do to promote growth and revive these bushes? I can post pics when I get home from work, if that helps.
