Carpet plants overgrown

This is my first planted tank, and I've been attempting to do a HM (pearlgrass) carpet in it, but it's looking more like a jungle than a carpet.

How do I get the patches and edges filled in? Should I just do a big trim off the top and see what happens, or try to lie the plants down to create a carpet? Or possibly even uproot some and replant them in the gaps?

I tried trimming and replanting the stems but they didn't stay in the substrate.
