Garick is proud that we were part of this huge greenroof project in Nashville, TN. 

A greenroof was installed on top of the Nashville Music City Center back in 2012. The size of this greenroof is 191,000 square feet and we helped blend the growing medium, rooflite® to support this project.

College Co-Op programs have been popular with both students and employers. These programs give the students a chance to show their skills and what they have learned in school. It also gives the employer a chance to hire potential new employees.

Garick also provides a Co-Op program for students at our local College/Universities. We recruit at local schools such as Cuyahoga Community College, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, University of Akron, Baldwin Wallace, and John Carroll University. Every year we have between six to ten interns that start the year with us in Customer Relations, Supply Chain, and Information Technology. The program has been successful in teaching the students about work experiences, responsibilities, and new career opportunities.

Recently our Senior Regional Service Manager, John Biliboaca, has been appointed to the Tri-C Experiential Learning Advisory Committee. The committee meets quarterly and he has already attended his first meeting. John has been with...

Soil Science #7: Terrior the Taste of Soil terroir photo

There’s a great debate among self-proclaimed “foodies” about the significance of microclimates, geography, water, and, of course, soil on the flavors we associate with wines, cheeses, breads, meats, poultry, garden vegetables, and just about everything we eat that hasn't been processed. I’m talking of course about terroir. Terroir (tair-WAHR) is the French term for soil often used in conjunction with the phrase gout de terroir or, taste of the soil. The term is particularly beloved among wine lovers. If you've seen Dirt! The Movie, you’ll undoubtedly recall the scene in which a well-regarded wine expert compares the flavor of the Sangiovese he just chugged to a pinch of the vineyard sandy loam...

In this installment of Everyday Soil Science, I will address the use of mulch to improve the moisture holding capacity of your soil. Mulch, for the purpose of this discussion, is any material spread over the soil surface to protect soil quality and preserve soil function....

Garick is proud to say that we were apart of this wonderful project at The Ohio State University. We help blend the green roof growing materials for the 12,000 square foot green roof on Howlett Hall. Howlett Hall is part of the Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens, which is a public garden located at the University. This green roof was completed in September 2013 and is the first publicly-accessible green roof in Columbus, Ohio.

Here are some quick facts we want to share with you in honor of Earth Day: Instead of using paper coffee cups, bring your own next time! Plastic water bottle is another huge land fill as only 20% gets recycled Plastic or paper grocery bags are both not good for the environment. Go green and carry your own reusable bag! We each use about 12,000 gallons of water every year & 1/3 of all water is used to flush the toilet! One bus carries as many people as 40 cars! 5 billion aluminum cans are used each year Every ton of paper that is recycled saves 17 trees 84 percent of all household waste can be recycled Composting reduces yard waste volume by 50 to 75 percent! That is a lot of waste going into land fills! Garick is also celebrating Earth Day this year with many different type of promotions at our 5 facility: (click to see each facility) Paygro New Milford Farms...

As the weather starts to break away from the cold winter and sunlight starts peeking out from the sky we being to think “Spring.” It may still be chilly outside, but Spring is officially here! If you did not prepare your garden during the fall, we will teach you how to prepare your garden in the spring. Let’s begin with knowing your soil from our last blog post and then learning how to bring life back to your soil!



It's best to start with a clean garden area, so any dead leaves and other debris should be removed. You can do this even when the ground is frozen, so when the ground thaws you can go straight to the soil.

In some regions it still might be too cold and the ground is still probably frozen. If that is the case then I would wait until the ground warms up so the soil is easy to work with. Working in the soil too early can harm the soil structure...

In this third installment in the Everyday Soil Science series, we move our discussion from soil as a “living” ecosystem “fed” with life-giving organic matter to the abiotic “mineral fraction” comprised of sand, silt, and clay particles.

In the soil world, being small rules. The diameter of sand particles ranges from 2mm to 0.05mm, silt particles from 0.05mm to 0.002mm, and clay less than two microns (about the size of a bacterium). As the particles get smaller, they get more difficult to see, and in fact, clay particles are invisible to the naked eye. Unable to actually see the proportion of sand, silt, and clay in a soil, soil scientists have cleverly utilized the difference in how each particle “feels” to determine the relative proportion in a given sample of soil.

To understand how each particle feels, let’s think about clothing. Imagine a burlap jacket or wool sweater against your skin. How would that feel? How about rayon, silk, or satin? And Velcro? We can associate the feel of the clothing examples with the feel of sand, silt, and clay. Sand is rough or “gritty” like burlap. Silt is soft and “smooth” like silk, and clay is “sticky” like Velcro.
