|About||The Garden Dept. is a full service nursery operation with 2 locations serving Long Island and the tri-state area since 1976.|
Vic Caroleo son of Don Caroleo Sr. opened The Garden Dept. Corp. with 2 acres and nowhere to start from. Vic took pride in his hard work to grow one of Long Island’s most successful nurseries. Following in your father's footsteps, along with making a name for yourself and your business in this type of industry isn't an easy task, but it was one that Vic was determined to master and he did. Over time Vic has become an expert in the nursery business, very well respected in the community and in the business world. Vic Caroleo is a very articulate and inspiring man known for his wisdom and knowledge. Although Vic has retired and handed the business to his son Don Caroleo, he still holds a chair on the board and offers his expertise and advice in the newest Dix Hills location which has been a major success and great move by The Garden Dept.
Vic Caroleo retired and passed The Garden Dept. Corp legacy to his son Don Caroleo. Don has taken The Garden Dept. Corp. to new levels of success, growing to 2 locations on Long Island. A large part of Don being one of the best in the industry is his business sense, not being afraid to take risks and thinking outside of the box. Some may say that his blood runs green from being in the business for so long, but that is what makes Don the business man that he is. Don has taken on a legacy like no other and is now the proud owner of 2 nursery locations with over 75 employees and will continue to use his cutting edge knowledge to strive, soar and expand.
