Bought a house and my gardenia bushes were overgrown by bushes. I cut the bushes away but my gardenias are bare and stringy. What should I do?

You could prune any dead material from the bushes now.
Then after the flowers have faded at the end of the summer, prune the shrubs to more pleasing appearance.
Here are a couple of articles to help you get started.
