Not sure if this is in the right place but here is my dilema.... I took on a light landscape removal job as well as a 2 month mow service for this clown that just bought a house and is moving into it in a few months. I gave him a price for the services we agreed and I asked for half up front. He wrote me a check... (He REALLY did not want to pay any until job complete) I said I would not do work without at least half. The first cut was a big job as it had not been done in at least 2 months. (st augustine grass in Florida) The landscape job was to remove all hedges from front and back of house. I removed and entire trailer and truck bed FULL .. about 30 hedges. So I do the first cut and explain to the guy I can't get to the hedges for about a week as I am in season with mowing and have a strict schedule. No Problem he says. 3 days later he is calling me wanting to know why the hedges have not been removed. I refer to our initial conversation and tell him I would have it done by the end of the week. He says OK. Friday rolls around and I get there remove the hedges and do a second cut. I call him to tell him job is complete and to find out when he can meet me to pay for the balance. (No Answer) I get a call from him the next day and he is flipping out on me saying the job is a mess. That i did not rake up his beds and remove old mulch and weeds.... NONE OF THAT WAS TALKED OF. I even asked him if he wanted anything additional other that tearing out the hedges. He says NO his wife was going to do the landscaping. He says he thinks we are even and he was not going to pay me the balane of what was owed. I am looking into what I need to do to file a Lein on his home currently. But in the mean time what I want to do is to return all the hedges that I pulled back to his front yard. I currently have them piled in my back yard. My dilema is that this home is in a gated community that has a PITA security gate that has banned LCO's from the community before. And I am a little concerned about him calling the cops and what they could do to me. If I was confronted I would simply explain that I was contracted to remove this stuff and then he did not pay. I am not going to pay out of my pocket for disposal of his crap. So I am just returning it..... What do ya'll think I should do here????
