Landscaping Dilemmas = to remove or not to remove??

Hello! We're doing some updating on our home we recently purchased. It is the epitome of a Fixer-Upper. Our back deck is lovely, but not without issues. I'm sure it seemed like a good idea to include these in the deck at the time when the plants were young and small. But, as you can see, they've outgrown their surroundings. First, the group of shrubs/trees planted up against the brick of them is DEAD dead! It definitely needs to be removed, and I feel like if it does then the others should as well. Thoughts on how to do so without completely destroying the adjoining brickwork? Secondly, the larger one near the house...cut it down and kill the stump? Try to pull it up somehow?

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
