    Yup. What MO said. Cut the check and send it back! Tell him you'll call him in the spring to see if he needs that clean up. Im booked for this year. Thanks for your business.

    If the work he wants doesn't equal the money he's paid you then I'd send him the money back.

    Thank him for his business and tell him you are no longer able to service his lawn.

    Cut all ties to that dude as quick as you can but be professional about it.

    As others have said. At this point, send the money back. If he waited this long then he had something up his sleeve the entire time and was just holding you on a leash. Because he was not up front with everything, I'd send him a check and let him know your schedule is completely booked.

    Cut him a check. In Pa. any unclaimed or non-refunded money or items must be turned over to the state. You can't keep them.
