Many of the Azaleas are 10 – 12 tall and upwards of 20 feet wide. I need to cut them back and am looking for the best way to trim them.

f they are blooming well and you have no need to control the size, I suggest leaving them. If they are leggy or you want them shorter, here is a good article on pruning, but you sure have your work cut out for you if they are all around the property. Maybe only do a third of them each year for three years. Also, be sure to wait till after this year's bloom to prune, or you will cut off all the buds.
