    well my lawn season of dismay continues last week i lost a large job, it goes like this a family member got me in this season he got to 3 bids mine was the lowest the guy who works at this company he was the highest he was doing it for about 10 years, so anyway i got the job the first day we were there, 7 people were watching us mow like they never a z-turn before, the lawn looked great stripes and diagnals. Then last week my family member calls me and says they want to cancell service cause of all the crab grass and clover, i said, they never said to prevent that stuff in my specs, he said i know the are just inventing stuff to ***** about. i I HATE THE LAWN BUSINESS

    I would say nope cant do that its all laid out in the contract. If you cancel I will sue you plain and simple. That should make them stand up straight as long as your contracts are clearly laid out.

    Why don't you speak to them about this first? Neither they nor you should just fly of the handle and say 'screw it'. See if you can come to an agreement and continue service, if not then move on.
