We’re excited to share that Earthco Soil Mixtures has undergone an entirely new look. Following the rebranding of our parent company, G&L, updating of the logo created almost 15 years has given Earthco Soil Mixtures a fresh new look.

Each of G&L’s sub-brands was assigned its own key brand colour, drawing upon the natural elements that inspire the products. Earthco Soil Mixtures is green, representing plants and trees. These colours help to easily identify the brand at a glance, and carve out a more distinct brand presence.

Furthering this was the creation of each sub-brand’s individual icon, based upon G&L’s legacy round logo, but modernized to convey each brand’s unique product offering. Earthco Soil Mixtures’ icon is made of circular shapes reminiscent of soil particles. The icons serve as another method to unify all brands under the G&L umbrella while creating a unique pattern distinct to each sub-brand. Our goal with this rebranding was to create something enduring that would appear contemporary today, yet be timeless enough to last throughout the next decade. We’re extremely happy with the result and look forward to rolling out our new look.

Earthco Soil Mixtures celebrates its 20th Season

Monday, May 01, 2017

This year, Earthco Soil Mixtures celebrates its 20th anniversary. Founded in 1997, Earthco Soil Mixtures began with one screening plant and a single dump truck.

As the years passed, the business grew, supplying notable projects along the way, from the Toronto Airport Expansion, Pan Am Athletes Village and Aquatic Centre, to West Don Lands and Ontario Place.

Today we have 13 screening plants, make over 250 soil mixes, and are continually adding the latest equipment and technology to our fleet. The soil industry has evolved over the past 20 years, and environmental regulations and stringent soil specifications from Landscape Architects have become the norm.

Earthco Soil Mixtures has adapted to provide the support and consultation our customers need to navigate these complicated regulations. Today, we are proudly leading the soil industry in Southern Ontario as the experts in custom soil blends, amendments, and consultation. review best rolex replica watch forum replica oyster perpetual rolex
