Meet the Owners of Garden City Tree & Landscape LTD
For Chris Stansfield, working with the outdoors is in his blood. He combines a long heritage of northern Italian farmers with a degree from the Malaspina University-College Horticulture program. His career in landscaping began nearly two decades ago with a tree company in Victoria. In 2003, he founded Garden City Tree & Landscape LTD, where he specializes today in the creative aspects of our landscaping services. With his wife Ronda, he is the proud father of three beautiful children.
Colin Eaton grew up loving the outdoors in the Rossland Ski country of West Kootenay. As a certified Organic Land Care Professional, he also holds certifications in Ecological Landscape Design, Organic Turf Management, and Organic Soil Management. In addition to his landscape expertise, his strong business background helps to keep our team's projects running in a structured, efficient, and professional manner. Colin has lived on the Island for more than twenty years. With his wife Rachel, he is the proud father of three children.
Taewyn Cleugh is a born and raised Victoria woman who spent her childhood and youth in the beautiful Island outdoors. She learned her strong work ethic from her immigrant mother who single parented her brother, Stephen and herself. She learned her sales and entrepreneurship from an early age working alongside her mother selling at local craft fairs and shows. She broadened her outlook by travelling and living overseas in her young adulthood returning to Victoria where she entered the job market in the landscaping business where she was mentored by the owner of a local turf farm learning to run and operate a small business. This ignited her passion for business in the landscape industry and in 2012 Taewyn joined Chris and Colin in the initial stage of their business merger and has been a driving force behind the company's organization and operations since. Taewyn has a very active life outside of work that includes parenting two beautiful dogs.
Our three owners each bring their own unique strengths and perspectives in making Garden City Tree & Landscape LTD your leading landscape contractors in Greater Victoria.

“Excellent quality. Excellent value. Professional, respectful and courteous. Personable. Prompt and timely. Outstanding work ethic. The mature cedar hedge surrounding my property needed a major reshaping, a significant pruning to repair previous cuts, and a careful trimming to restore a manicured appearance. Garden City Tree & Landscape Ltd. was able to deliver on all accounts. From the initial consultation and same day estimate from owner Chris, to the professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and skilled attention from the arborist team, I received top notch service and excellent value from Garden City Tree & Landscape Ltd. Upon arrival, the team outlined their work plan to help restore the health and appearance of the hedge and then kept me updated of their progress throughout the course of the job. They were very respectful of my property, incredibly hardworking and most helpful with recommending ways for me to care for the hedge until their next visit. Additionally, I ordered five yards of the company's kelp mulch. Same day delivery and excellent product quality.”
"GCT&L is a pleasure to deal with. They are highly professional, care deeply about the environment we share and their arborist Chris is amazing to watch as he does his thing way up into the tree and it's branches. The crew, who has worked my property a couple of times always leaves the yard in better shape then when they arrive by cleaning up everything. From landscaping, tree servicing, consultations, to their magical garden mulch they are in 1st. place as the best company in their field on Vancouver Island. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed."
"We have used Garden City for a few years now to maintain our irrigation system. Their technician, James, is very competent and a true pleasure to have around."
"Garden City is hands down the best tree service in the city. They took on our huge job with a high degree of professionalism. The team was friendly and informative. They also gave me the best quote."
