A Maine Family Business

Born and raised in Belgrade, Maine on a 100+ acre Maine registered tree farm, Joe has always enjoyed and appreciated nature and spending time outdoors. Currently Joe resides in Hermon, Maine with his wife Jessica, daughter and two English bulldogs. When Joe is not landscaping he can most likely be found weekend summer months at his family’s camp on Salmon Lake in Oakland, Maine. There he enjoys water skiing, fishing and spending time with his family. Joe also enjoys canoeing and hiking and in colder snowy months snow shoeing, ice fishing and downhill skiing. His indoor orchid collection is a favorite hobby as well.
JL Landscape of Bangor, Maine specializes in landscape design, construction and maintenance. Owned and operated by Joe and Jessica Ladd, JL Landscape is a Maine Incorporated Business.
Joe holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maine in Landscape Horticulture with a concentration in landscape design. During his college education and the years following, Joe worked and gained experience in the landscape construction field.

What our clients say about JL Landscape…

It is our pleasure to write this testimonial of the quality workmanship provided by JL Landscape. We chose JL Landscape to update our landscaping.  Joe did a wonderful job, both in presenting the design and executing it.  He and his crew were always professional, great to work with and open to suggestions. The end result far exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend them for any landscape project.

JLLandscape (Joe Ladd) has been serving my landscape needs for the past several years.   He was initially recommended to me by a mutual friend to "rescue"  a perennial  garden area that was truly a disaster.   He removed all old debris, designed and replanted appropriate flowers for beauty throughout the growing season as well as adding rock accents.     The result was amazing  --- like a picture from "Better Homes and Gardens Magazine."  Joe has such an incredible vision for the space and at the same time incorporating the wishes of his customer.    He is very knowledgeable, organized and dependable.   Whether the project is a complete remake of the yard or regular maintenance, I would highly recommend JLLandscape.
