Help to identify to know how to cut back

Any idea what this ugly bush is? Because it's difficult knowing how to maintain it. It grows very quickly and I would like to cut it down to 4 feet but then it would jut be branches coming out of ground.

Any other recommended shrub in southeast va for those areas seen only from street?

Re: Help to identify to know how to cut back

Is it a shrub or a tree? Even though it branches very low above the ground, it looks like a single trunk coming from the ground? Is it evergreen? Does it bloom?

Re what to put there instead, what direction is that wall facing? How much sun does the area get?
