How to prune the Natal plum bushes to encourage more foliage?

3 years ago

Our Natal plum hedges were overgrown so we hired a tree service company to trim it back a few months ago. The hedges closer to the road sprouted new leaves but the hedges near the house did not (see pictures). It looks like the entire bottom part of the hedge are fill with branches. How should I prune this area so the side of these hedges will have foliages instead of just showing ugly branches?
