Plantings, like all life forms, age with time. Some flourish, but become overgrown, some struggle or die, others are impacted by weather or disease. Most however just require routine maintenance to promote their esthetic appearance and health growth patterns.
Knowing what to prune and when to prune it are key factors in promoting healthy growth and maintaining an esthetically pleasing shape. Too much and the plant may be forever damaged, too little and the plant may become overgrown past the point of recovery.
