Landscape Design and Build In Springfield, MO

For 30 years, designing and building some of the most beautiful and functional landscapes in Springfield, MO area



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


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.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Our small church needed a fresh look to enhance the entrance to our building. Mark took the time to sketch out possibilities there, and also for other areas that can further improve the curb appeal of the building in the future. Having taken a small sampling this morning of the reaction from fellow church members, the entrance improvement was a great success. I am already planning for Imagination Landscapes to perform the other work that has been detailed. Mark is a professional is every way and a pleasure with which to do business.”
