Lawn maintenance and security

I started an agreement with existing tenants- a deduction of rent for them to maintain the lawn this past summer. After having received multiple calls from friends, family and other tenants about how bad the property had been maintained I had to hire a company to repair the damage for the work not being adequately done. This cost me $600. The tenants gave me a 30 day notice the same day I came to inspect the lawn. Is the cost of repairing the property deductible from their security?
