Pruning lilacs

We have a row of lilac bushes with foliage and blooms 6 feet or higher between our house and our neighbors. The lower stems and branches below are bare. Can we severely prune the bushes back to the bare branches to control the bushes size and try to encourage growth on the lower branches? Or will it harm or kil the lilacs?

planting mums

Hello, Thank you for taking your time to submit your question to the OSUEMGV Ask an Expert group I have hardy fall mums and want to plant the outside but can't put them where... I have hardy fall mums and want to plant the outside but can't put them where I want them until spring. Can I plant them in a partially shaded area for the winter? Would they get settled enough to make it through the winter? Also, I planted mums last fall and they came up beautifully. They are very large and well rounded, as I did pinch back, but only once in the spring. The problem is, is that they are full of buds but aren't blooming. What's wrong? Thank you.
