How should I prune these rose bushes?
Late summer 2005 we had our garden revamped by a landscaper. She planted two small Knockout (?) Rose bushes. They were about 18" above ground when planted. I thought they were going to be compact bushes. Last year they grew a lot and have turned into tall messy things. They each have fewer than 10 stems up to four feet high. I am wondering if I can/should prune them back to something more neat. I think there are already tiny leaf buds starting already. What can I do to manage these roses? How much can I prune them?
Here are some blurry pictures I took today from my cell phone. (You can also see I need to clear out the fall's leftovers. :-) )
