Joel Mickelson, Owner

Hi! I'm Joel. I grew up in the Chisago Lakes Area and currently live in Lindstrom on our farm with my wife, Katie and our two kids, Hazel and Henry. I graduated from Chisago Lakes High School in 2006. Immediately after graduating, I began working with a variety of landscaping companies in the area. This sparked a passion for landscape design that led me to Dakota County Technical College to specialize in Landscape Horticulture. While going to DCTC, I was able to travel to Atlanta, GA for a competition with PLANET Student Career Days. I placed 56th out of 865 students who competed. A couple years later, I joined the United States Marine Corps. In 2012, I deployed to Afghanistan. Upon returning to the United States, I finished my Landscape Horticulture A.A.S. from DCTC and graduated in May 2013. In 2013, I began working for a well-known local landscaper, who was (and continues to be!) a wonderful mentor. Soon after, I felt inspired to begin my own journey in the landscaping field. In 2014, Mickelson Landscaping was born.

In my free time, I can be found taking the tractor for a spin, working on the farm and taking care of our animals, woodworking, and spending time with my family.
