Green Grass and Make Up

Well does this mean that we are now applying make up to our turf to make it look good? No!

Does it mean we are applying it to out Coastal Turf staff to make them look good? Well, we tried.


Last Friday I wore make up to work to make myself that little bit less Mum like and more awesome working woman. I looked alright. I was happy, even had a few comments on how different and “nice” I looked. Thanks for that. Then in walks Dad and says we have a few meters to cut, need you to come and help. “sure” I say. Stupidly thinking that a “few Meters” meant 10 or so. But Oh No!

A few meters was a few hundred. There was dust (swear there was a mini wirly wirly circling me in dust) and mud (from where we had been irrigating) on me. The turf was lovely and pretty easy to cut, but i walked away not as lovely as I had entered. Lesson- Never wear Makeup to work unless you know you aren’t cutting turf. Good life one. Told my life lesson to Macca (a lovely 50 something gentleman who has worked with us for over 20 years) and he said yes. He would never wear makeup to cut turf either. He says the lipstick makes the dust stick to his lips. Ha ha

Chat Soon, hopefully less dusty. Come on RAIN!
