Sorry for the delay in responding.
I suspect you could cut your hydrangeas back harshly, but the first year you won't have many flowers.
The other solution would be to transplant them somewhere else, where the size wouldn't be a problem. I transplanted many of mine and they are doing fine. Again, the first year after having been moved, they won't bloom too much, but the second year they should thrive.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Southern California Gardener's September Checklist
You can modify the color of hydrangea flower heads (which are actually bracts) by changing the pH of the soil. For blue flowers, you'll want to achieve a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. For pink flowers, you want a pH of 7.0 to 7.5. Use an inexpensive soil pH test kit from the nursery or hardware store to test the pH of the soil around the plant's roots. Lower the soil pH by adding sulphur or aluminum sulfate (making the soil more acid). Raise the soil pH by adding ground agricultural limestone (making the soil more alkaline). Follow label directions for application rate and frequency.
