The amount in dispute is $260.00. I know not a big amount, but it is not something I want to pay after I told him not to do it.
The lawn cutting services he provides are done every three weeks or so. But it is the winter aeration that I specifically told him I did not want done.
It is an optional service he provides outside of the tri-weekly lawn care service. I have proof through text that I told him not to do this. I know that may not count for much. But even on the invoice he sent me, his dates are completely wrong on when the services were rendered as well.
