Answer: Shrubs often become leggy when they get older. In the case of your burning bushes you can promote a full and bushy look by pruning a little off every year. Pruning encourages new growth and if you cut your shrub back by a few inches every year you should be able to force new growth towards the bottom of the plant. I'm afraid those bunnies will return so you may need to encircle the bottom of your shrub with chicken wire fencing to protect the new growth. Best wishes with your landscape!
