If You Pay Peanuts You Can Only Expect Monkeys.
#1

Popped over to local country markets on Saturday and it was across the road from a council owned property-older historic house with gardens I worked there for around six months last year doing the garden maintenance I had to re tender for the position but missed out due to council getting a half retired garden worker for a few dollars less. Well they might have save some money-but the hedges and garden are a mess again. I felt quite saddened that all my work went to waste.See pics-first two from 5/717 the last one 5/7/18 what a difference a year makes-not!

Yep spot on Zippy , they want contractors to work for wages have all the gear and the expertise and do brake a back hard work . They obviously never noticed how good a job you did the fools.
