Juniper shrub?

Asked April 23, 2018, 11:27 AM EDT

Hello, Can you confirm that this is a Juniper shrub/bush? There are a lot of dead branches under the top layer. What is the best way to trim it to make it look healthy again??

It has the shape and form of a spreading juniper. The photo is too fuzzy to say absolutely what it is.
These need to be pruned very carefully to avoid making them look ugly or sparse.
