yes, but see what others think, that's just my opinion

I think I'd take it down to the branching below the red mark, cut it off completely and train the shoot on the left as a leader.

I think we've got your point meanwhileinhell. 

Had you noticed that all those plants have been IDd by real people while you're banging on about 'features'

I cropped your second image so that it was just the red flowers and used that to search, and it looks like it could be Jack In The Pulpit.

If using this feature, best to try to use a close up of the flower.

See original post

That's the problem with 'features'. You'd need to seed the flowers and leaves for an accurate ID. Jack in the pulpit (Arum maculatum) is just one possibility. Berghill has suggested another, there are others.  I will be convinced by such features when I see one differentiate between 2 similar species. That is yet to happen

Advice/Suggestion of where to Purchase

Sounds like a waste of time and more work creating a new lawn. Not sure how being single comes into it. My marital status doesn't seem to affect my grass cutting.

Hard to access the size but I think it's something smaller than London Pride, maybe some other saxifraga. 

Clematis virginianana

How about a photo?

A greater probability is our own native Clematis vitalba, Old Man's Beard. But some garden clematis seed around as well

Leycesteria formosa, aka Himalayan Honeysuckle but it isn't a honeysuckle.

You can do what you like to it, cut a few old stems to the ground, cut it all to the ground, it will come back. Don't just shorten all the stems to make it smaller though, that looks really naff.
