You may need to do some corrective pruning to balance the lopsided shrubs. Prune during mild weather so the plant can recover easily, avoid pruning when a cold spell is coming on. Remove stems to about 6 inches from the ground that are misshapen, crossing other branches, damaged or top heavy, causing the plant to lean one way.
