There are a few evergreen bushes in front of my parent's home and they are overgrown. How do I trim them back?

These bushes/hedges are evergreen and they are getting way too big. They're overgrowing the sidewalks/yard/each other and I want to cut them back a little.
My father tried to cut them back a few years ago so he did an experiment and trimmed one back and it never filled back out... but he did it on the shady side of the bush where it meets the house and my theory is that this prevented the grow back. If I trim the entire bush back a lot, will it grow back before winter comes and kills it?
