Job Description

Garden City Tree & Landscape is unique in how we operate here in Greater Victoria. Our large and centrally located works yard is zoned to allow us to re-purpose the organic material and overburden we collect in our day to day landscape and arborist operations. By grinding the organic waste and by separating and blending the overburden soils brought to our yard, we are able to re-purpose close to 90% of the materials that other landscape operations would consider waste. Not only does this re-purpose effort considerably reduce our environmental footprint, it also allows us the ability to control the quality of the materials we sell to our clients.
