Q.Is This A Prostrate Form Of These Shrubs Or Do They Need Serious Pruning?

Zone Independence, Ohio | Ddfflowers added on June 6, 2020 | Answered

I just moved into a home with several overgrown flower beds. I have found two different shrubs that are either prostrate forms or badly pruned/planted. The first is a forsythia. It is no taller than 4 feet and is almost 10 feet wide. The branches start only 3 inches from the ground. It is beautiful, but is crowding everything else and is difficult to weed below. The other is a weigela. it is no taller than 3 feet but has some branchea that come out at ground level and grow along the ground. Should I be pruning these?
