High humidity is not a legitimate reason for breaking the lease. As the landlord stated a dehumidifier, and or air purifier could eliminate the problems you wife is experiencing.
You need to be aware if there is high dampness there may be a possibility of mold. You can have the property inspected for mold, or you can purchase some test kits from a home depot or Lows store. If the house has a mold problem then the landlord would have a limited time to repair the property and remediate the problem. He might be more agreeable on letting you out of lease. The law requires that the property be habitable.
If you are responsible for keeping the grass cut then you can continue to use the yard service or the kid down the street to cut the grass. The landlord cannot dictate how the grass is to get cut.

Thank you very much. She does think there is a mold problem and she is very allergic to mold which is what brought all of this up. They only tested for moisture this morning so we'll try the tips
