From the initial consultation with Chris, through to the completed project, we have been hugely impressed with the responsiveness, professionalism, creativity and hard work ethic demonstrated by all the team members at Victoria Garden City. The staff are courteous, friendly and welcome ongoing feedback during the project. At the end of the project they cleaned up the entire work area, and left it as they found it. Chris’s estimation process is really straight forward to understand, with a transparent and structured payment schedule. This really reassured us, and gave us the confidence to proceed with our garden construction project. We are so happy with the end result, we now have a large new space in a previously unusable sloped part of our property. We especially love the steps feature and are looking forward to the grass growing and planting up the borders. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Victoria Garden City – and we would use them again for our next garden project. Thanks again Chris and all the team at Garden City! (Especially Wrenna the beautiful dog!)
The team did a great job. They made the process easy and straightforward which was helpful as I was not able to be home for most of the time they were there working. What really made us happy was how clean they left everything when they left which was a bit above and beyond what I would have expected.
My team; Conan and Clo were excellent. They did everything I requested and were most efficient and professional. Will recommend your company and of course call on you again when I need further work done. I really cannot recommend anything that could improve my experience as I was more than pleased all around.
The mulch was delivered right on time by Jackie with help from two associates. It was a pleasure to meet these three young people who were so cheerful first thing in the morning and, obviously, very happy in their work. I first heard about this fortified mulch from Jay Ahrens who is such a help to me in my garden. I bought some last year and the plants responded very well to the added nutrients. As a member of the Sooke Garden Club, I meet up with a lot of other gardeners and will be happy to spread the word about your excellent services & products.
We were very pleased with the work that your team did on our gardens. They were professional, knowledgeable about gardens with perennials and bulbs which meant working around these. They worked well together, swiftly but orderly and neatly. We are pleased with the mulch and the aesthetic look it gives. Our grass was also fed and look forward to a stronger lawn to avoid weeds.
Absolutely stunning job on site preparation and cleanup, the crew showed up when they said they would and they finished when they said they would. In this day, that in itself is a rare treat. I’m really happy with how the end product came together – it looks great – and we never got one call of complaint from either of the neighbours or our tenants in spite of all the disruption. Thank you for that.

I just wanted to say that James just left and he was wonderful. He took the time to explain how the system works. I’ve never worked with anyone that would take the time to do this. I feel like I could trouble shoot some of the smaller issues myself now.
Your team did everything well. Arrived when they should have and got to work promptly. Reviewed what we wanted done and when they were finished, they gave me the opportunity to inspect. They had done it all as we asked. Clean up was excellent and both of them were personable. We are now looking at getting you back for front of house landscaping and advice regarding replacing plants or pruning and shaping there. I have already recommended you to others that are thinking of doing tree work. Much appreciated for the job done.
Thanks again for everything! I will definitely recommend you and your crews to anyone.
Just wanted to say what a pleasure it is to deal with your company! You are always so nice on the phone and all the workers I have had here are truly wonderful. We really enjoy Jessie and how much she loves our garden! If we didn’t have our gardener, Susan, for the past 18 years, we would be hiring your services full time! Very appreciatively, The Vaughn Family

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your part in improving the lives of women and girls, supporting the work of Soroptomists. The Flavour of Chocolate was REALLY fun, sold out and raised awareness and funds for Anney’s Closet, Imagining Possibilities, educational awards, and more.
I love the phrase “a rising tide lifts all the boats”, that’s how I feel about creating the ‘best for women’. And it truly does take a village of giving people, so thank you for being in my village.

Garden City Tree & Landscaping designed and installed a natural play space at our school and we are delighted with the result! The process was collaborative and fun and the design was even better than we had envisioned. Teachers who are taking kindergarten/preschool and grade one/two students to the play space have reported an unexpected benefits. In addition to providing a wide variety of play experiences, they tell us that there are fewer conflicts on the natural play space than in our other playgrounds. Children are so hands-on and engaged in imaginative play, they are not squabbling about taking turns or arguing about the rules of a game. It’s made supervising recess a pleasure for staff!

Thank you for making the Metchosin Community Association’s services auction a success. It is people like you that ensure these events are fun and strengthen community ties.

Thanks Guys! The ideas were helpful. The work was quick. The crew worked steadily and were pleasant. They adapted to minor in-process changes with no fuss. Mike built a nice little entrance gate from a simple picture. We are getting lots of compliments.
Elizabeth and Bob
Much appreciation for providing one of the best days ever at Mitchell House. Not only does the back garden look great, but a couple of the guys were inspired to consider landscaping as a vocation, and two of the guys who worked with you that day are now working together. Thanks again for making it all happen!
Graham on behalf of Mitchell House
Many thanks for doing another outstanding job at our place. I will recommend you to everyone I know for weeding help in their garden or with tree removal. Thanks again!
I have never used a professional landscaping company before and I must say, this experience has been fantastic! There are so many good things about your company: the website, the organization of work, the prompt replies, the friendly workers, the understanding of people who know nothing about yard work and the appearance of your fleet! Working with me to find a solution within my budget showed that you go the extra mile for a customer. Considering I guessed with my choices on the web, I am very pleased that your website did not lie, what I saw was what I got.
Please extend my thanks to the crew that worked through the rain and in the mud! My backyard is happier already! Your business card will be passed along to another with my highest recommendations and we will work together again, as soon!!
With Spring around the corner and plants already showing signs growth …. I am reminded how fortunate we were to have had Chris and Colin and their fantastic crews create our new garden. All aspects of our garden renovation were very positive and we “echo” the well written testimonials about this dynamic company with one important addition, their guarantee.
In today’s construction environment it’s vitally important to have a company guarantee their work. Garden City Tree and Landscape’s standard of workmanship and quality control are in a league of their own. If the work they do is not up to their own high standards, it is promptly corrected at their own expense. This amazed me and gave me the confidence to refer them, successfully, to neighbours and friends without hesitation.
Last but not least, their honest, efficient and accurate accounting staff who politely and efficiently answered any and all questions about work crew hours, material costs and details of our job without hesitation. You indeed are rare and we appreciated you all.

I got home to find a really beautiful waterfall / water feature. Thank you for taking care of that – you are a man of your word and do great work. Thanks again – not many people stick to their word or see work through till it is perfect – you are rare.

We have recently listed our house for sale and an area that we constantly receive positive feedback on is the beautiful and tranquil patio garden area that was installed by Garden City Tree & Landscape. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to any of our friends & family.

Our landscaping project turned out better than we had expected and the project was completed on time and under budget. We found Garden City Tree and Landscape Ltd. to be very organized, honest and knowledgeable. We found the crew (i.e., April, Chris, Dakota and Kevin) to be reliable and very hard working. It was clear that the team communicate very well and we found them responsive and helpful at every stage of the project. They brought creative ideas, excellent job knowledge and a very impressive work ethic to our project. We will work with this team again and will certainly recommend Garden City Tree and Landscape to any of our friends or family. Thank you for a job very well done!
