    I'm sorry, but when I mow over your dog's cr@p, it seems to really kick off my allergies!

    Honesty is the best policy here.
    Simply put it to them, we will no longer be able to service your property based on our business relationship in the past.
    This way you are not disrespectful, and you say what you need to.
    I'm sure you'd love to share a lot of other words, but it's best to not have them spreading anything negative about you.
    This all is being said of course with keeping in mind they did something which was not laid out in your contract???
    Or is this someone you just don't like to mow? kind of two different situations then.
