Can a business break a contract and not abide by it?

Question Details: I recently entered into a contract with a apartment complex. I began work approximately 6 weeks ago. When I began work the property had not been serviced for 8 months, so everything was overgrown grass, bushes, flowerbeds, weeds, etc. When I began work it would rain about 2 or 3 times every week. After 3 weeks on the job, I was let go because they said that the tenants were complaining about the property. However, you have to have realistic expectations it takes time to get the property to excellent condition. My contracts states that the only way a contractor can be let go was to get bad performance ratings. Performance ratings are done quarterly, so I have not been under contract long enough to get 1 evaluation. What can I do?
