For Bangor landscaper Joe Ladd, “Our Maine Life” harkens to quiet days on the Belgrade lakes where he grew up, surrounded by nature. So it’s not surprising that his landscape display will utilize that theme and take it to the next level.
This year’s Garden Show is Ladd’s first solo competition. As a University of Maine graduate, Ladd has been to the Garden Show before as part of the UMaine team. This year, he’s excited to show visitors to the show what he can do.
“I loved it and had a lot of fun,” Ladd said. “It’s an amazing challenge to put it together in just a couple of days. I’m a fresh face with new ideas and things to offer.”
Ladd’s business has been offering landscape design, hardscape and softscape services, and maintenance services to clients in the “bedroom communities of Bangor” and some Downeast.
