A few years back a neighbour.....tenant there...had a  leylandii growing too near my boundary wall.  So one day, armed with a sharp saw, I went over and cut it down.  Prob 9' tall but thin stem. glad I did.  Another, much further away, grew huge and ultimately needed a tree surgeon.  

Not recommended but effective .  Wouldnt you like to be my neighbour?

You dont say which varieties but growing in pots they prob need a topping up of fresh compost.  You prob have the dwarf types that I think often look better without flowers esp if pruned to dome shape.
