Will my plants and flowers grow back after someone cut them down

I live in a townhouse community that is rented. We are encouraged to garden and such. They are even hosting a prettiest patio contest. My plants in the back are doing wonderful, however the ones in the front of the house get tampered with by people a lot. Recently the grounds people who were hired by the company that owns the townhouses used a weedwacker and cut down my snap dragons, coleus, and red salvia. I would like to know if any of them will grow back. They are cut down to about 6 in

Thanks for writing. All of these plants should have the ability to regrow --- just give them a shot of fertilizer (any general-purpose product will do) to help jumpstart growth and they should bounce right back.
