Pruning should help, but if it is being over watered and you can't change the irrigation, then you may be right about relocating or potting. In your SoCal location you can do that now this month or wait until spring, March/April. You could even cut it to the ground to rejuvenate it before new spring growth begins.
Here is info on pruning:
