Landscaper quit

We just recently rented out our residence that we had lived in for 5 years.  We have had the same yard maintenance guy the entire time.  When we rented out our home we asked him to continue doing our yard and made it a part of the lease to sweeten the deal. I received a call last week and my maintenance guy quit because the demands of the tenants are too great.  What can I do?  What do I HAVE to do?  How do I write a letter to the tenants?, ect.  I have posted in a reply the section of our lease agreement where it discusses the issue at hand.  Oh, and the house is in Arizona.  TIA

talk to the landscaper... explain that he works for YOU not the tenant. Then... tell the tenant to leave the landscaper alone.  You hired him.. he does exactly the job you want done, and it is not their business to be talking to the landscaper about anything.    If they have any complaints, instructions, etc...they need to talk to you.  Maybe the landscaper will understand and once he knows that you have taken steps to stop this..he might stay working for you
I've been trying to post my lease agreement, but it won't let me :(.  I begged and begged and begged!  There is too much going on in his life and he is cutting the big jobs and the headache jobs.  We are both (we have a HUGE yard).
