Grow Your Outdoors with Organic Bulk Mulch in Greater Victoria, British Columbia
Reduce Your Footprint with Organic Mulch for a More Sustainable Landscape
At Garden City Tree & Landscape LTD, our passion for the health of our outdoors is evident in everything we do, including our bulk mulch. Our mulch is unique due to how it is made. We use chipped tree waste consisting of only local plant material. Once this material is dumped at our yard, we grind and compost it for a minimum of 6 months to allow it to obtain its dark, rich colour. Finally, we screen the product to remove any larger particles and produce a uniform appearance.
The finished products are excellent in a variety of applications, including the following:
- flower beds
- garden beds
- as a soil amendment
- as protection for critical root zone areas during construction activities
Our mulch has been tested by South Island Environmental, and the Certificate of Analysis confirms that our mulch meets or exceeds the guidelines set out by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment. These are rigorous standards that few, if any, of our competitors have met, and our mulch is yet another example of our team's dedication to the overall health of our environment.
Find the Right Bulk Mulch for Your Property
We understand the different needs our clients and landscapes have in Greater Victoria, which is why we offer three different types of bulk mulch to meet every consideration.
Fortified Kelp Mulch
To create our fortified kelp mulch, we add dry organic kelp to our island gold mulch and compost the blend for an extended period of time.
- Rejuvenates tired and depleted plants with its fortified blend of micronutrients for better health and growth
- Screened for a superior aesthetic appearance
- Continues to feed your plants for up to 12-18 months after application
Island Gold Mulch
Our island gold mulch has been repurposed from tree waste from our own arbor projects.
- Screened twice through a ½-inch screen to provide a superior aesthetic appearance
- Protects your plants for up to 12-18 months after application
Our coarse composted mulch provides similar benefits to our island gold, but it has only been screened once through a 2-inch screen for a coarser look and lower cost.
- Excellent for large areas
- Protects plants for up to 24 months after application
One cubic yard of mulch is approximately 100 square feet at our recommended depth of 3 inches. We also offer mulch delivery to all of Greater Victoria for a hassle-free experience.

"We have a cedar hedge 18' tall and pretty much out of control
It gives us a great privacy screen for our upper deck but was getting way too big. We considered what to do with it ,take it down and no privacy for 10/12 yrs? Not a good option but would get us some more garden space, it was some 16 to 18ft wide at the top A Monster hedge! 3 or 4 yrs ago We spoke to Chis Stansfield of Garden City and he came to look at the hedge and agreed it needed to stay for the privacy value, and proposed ways to manage and trim the hedge.
We now have a great hedge (thanks to Cris and co.) that is gradually getting into shape, takes a while, it is we think in the 80yr old range. He is a great arborist, practical and VERY knowledgeable, His people are fully qualified and insured, efficient and do a perfect job all the time, AND most importantly they like their job and company they work for. The trucks and gear arrive, job gets done in a professional and courteous manner, place left spotless and we end up with a GREAT looking Hedge.
Thank you and well done Garden City on our little bit of paradise.
We will be recommending them to our friends for sure!"
"Great company! Quick with communication, clear quote, arrived on time, friendly staff and completed a great tree trimming for our large cedar. Excellent clean up too! Thanks Garden City Tree we will be recommending you and calling again."
"Insightful consultation on options we had and the work required. Hardworking crew did a great job! Would recommend."
- M. Hofmeyr
"Unfortunately we had a very large Garry Oak come down, estimated at over 400 yrs old. It was located in the back corner of our yard. The tree split in half and half fell to our neighbour's yard on the downhill side of our house and went through their roof. The other half fell toward the neighbours behind us and went through their roof. One of the halves fell across our pergola and hot tub. In coming down the root balls came out of the ground. This huge tree caused so much damage! Professionals visiting the scene found the reach and extent of this event shocking. It was a complicated job to have three properties involved.
Early in the process Garden City was chosen to handle tree removal for all three properties. Their skill and hard work saw them through the 6 days required to remove the tree pieces. Chris Stansfield, Cory and crew were determined, cautious, and brilliant in their problem-solving and dedication to the safe removal of the large, heavy, and dense Garry Oak pieces. Through it all they maintained good communication with the home owners and they were vey good about answering questions and acknowledging concerns. Definitely five stars for Garden City!"

"Just had this company reshape and trim our cedar hedge, damaged by the snow and they topped and shaped another small group of cedars. Cory and Dan did a great job, looks perfect. They were on time, friendly, professional and cleaned up perfectly. The estimator, Todd, was also prompt, very knowledgeable and friendly. We have no hesitation recommending this company and we will have them back for follow up as needed."
- D. Smith
"I hired this firm to do an extensive landscaping job. What had once been beautiful gardens and lawns had been neglected for many years and were in terrible shape. They came in and completely transformed the wasteland into a beautiful landscape. Dead and dying trees were removed and other trimmed to allow a view of the water. A new feature was a gravelled area near the waterfront for enjoying life; a table and chairs made this perfect for relaxing. An existing flower bed was rejuvenated with the removal of blackberries and other weeds and a reduction in size. New plantings made it come alive. Sod was laid and the lawn areas are now lush and green, replacing the weed-filled dead lawn. The finale of this job was the replacing of dangerous old steps to the beach. This project took some time, but communication was great throughout. I always knew what was going on and, if I had any questions, they were answered the same day. I am extremely pleased with the work that this firm has done for me and highly recommend them to anyone who needs works done. The quality of work is second to none and their workers are friendly and efficient."
