We have bird of paradise in my front yard and they are beautiful. The issue that we have is they are now 7 feet tall and blocking the view of the house. Can I cut them back, and if so, where do we cut them?

Yes, you can prune back your bird of paradise plant. It is best to remove only 1/3 of the branches or of the height of each branch per year to avoid damaging its health. By pruning over several years, you can reduce the height over time.
