My holly trees have poor growth

My two holly trees do not have dense growth. Would pruning help? Both trees have good leaf and berry growth but are not showing dense growth. How can I improve for dense growth?

Yes, pruning will help shape your plants.
I would also check soil conditions and light since the shrubs are close to the house.
