Question DetailsAsked on 3/19/2014

Do I have to pay for a service i didnt request?

Asked for hydroseeding from Haley cleaning lawn, He misunderstood and was planning to over seed, aerate and put down straw. He says he aerated and put down some lime pellets, when there was a Wind advisory (50mph) I was at work and unaware he was there. I called him after getting a call from roomate and had him stop. After talking with him further he didnt understand what Hydroseeding actually is.. Am I obligated to pay him $135 ?

As a general rule , IF You did not order it , YOU do not have to pay for it !

It is incumbent upon the seller to prove otherwise or that you OWE FOR IT !

This sounds like another case of nothing in writing - a pity, because that would make it crystal clear what was ordered.

If you said hydroseed and he did something else, legally that is on him.

From a practical standpoint, if you were trying to get an existing lawn to grow better, what he is doing is actually the better thing to do - aerate to open up access for root growth, and overseeding and straw (if laid out right to actually cover the seed) if actually a much better way to get prevent seed washout and get seed germination and to protect he young grass than hydroseeding, though more expensive so used less often. You might consider, if he gives you a written guarantee of full growth coverage through say whatever month your Fall is, to let him continue and do the rest, assuming you were in agreement on pricing.
