Imagination Landscapes has been designing and building sustainable landscapes in Springfield and the surrounding Ozarks region for almost 30 years.
A ‘form follows function‘ philosophy is the basis behind all of our designs. A solid background in horticulture allows us to design the landscape around the function of the plant material chosen.
To create a sustainable landscape, a good understanding of each plant’s characteristics, habits, and how well it will tolerate its environment is needed. Understanding some basic principles ultimately allows for a more sustainable landscape to be enjoyed without overcrowding in years to come.

Services We Provide
LAYOUT and DESIGN
Before we begin, we must have a plan. To start, we gather as much information and input from the customer as possible during an initial walkthrough. During this time we visit about possibilities, wants, needs, dislikes, etc. Then, we take pictures and measurements and create a rough outline of the infrastructure. Once all the information has been gathered, it’s time to head to the drawing board and the creation begins!
The term Softscape or Garnishment means features that are non-structural. Theses are the shrubs, trees and perennials that add a little softness and accent characteristics to the hard, right angles of the structure we’re working to improve. Softscaping is essentially the living and animated part of the landscape.
Hardscape is the term used to describe solid, hard elements that tend to remain the same for many years. This includes landscape design elements such as walkways, retaining walls, rocks, pavers, driveways, arbors, gates, outdoor kitchens, decks, water features and more.
Nightscaping, or Accent Lighting, is an aesthetically pleasing method to enhance any feature in your landscaping. Accent lighting not only adds to the beauty and character of your home, but to the value and safety, as well.
Imagination Landscapes has completed a number of projects for our clients over the years. Projects new and old show our professionalism and quality to detail. You can see a few our completed projects below; for more, please visit our PORTFOLIO page.
What Our Clients Are Saying
“We asked Mark to update our 1970’s landscape around the house and pool. He truly lived up to his company name — in our wildest dream we could not have come up with the design/plants/highlights that he did. It truly looks like a completely different place and fast forwarded us into modern day. When he says to trust him — please do. In addition to understanding design, he also knows his plants and outdoor lighting. He took all the time we needed to answer all our questions and went over each plant to make sure we understood how to care for them. We have had experience with other companies and will never use any other than Mark. We HIGHLY recommend this company. You will not be disappointed.”
