Specialty Water Gardens & Landscapes has been in business since 2007 providing central Missouri with the highest quality water features. Josiah and Anne Crousore started the business when they noticed a growing need for a dedicated water feature focused landscape company. Our team enjoys forming relationships with clients to develop a personalized and uniquely landscaped oasis for each client.
Josiah has worked in the landscaping field beginning in 1994 and has been involved in retail and wholesale operations, installation, and many aspects of the industry. Passionate about water features, he is a Missouri Master Gardener and a certified Atlantic|Oase professional contractor. He enjoys long hikes in the woods, exploring and gathering inspiration from nature, fishing, and spending time working around his rural property with his family.
Anne has been in the green industry her whole life growing up with a mother, grandmother, and uncle who were passionate about gardening. She began working her first job at her Uncle's greenhouse and nursery in St. James, Missouri. Later Anne went on to earn a degree in Plant Science and Landscape Design from the University of Missouri. In her spare time, she loves to arrange flowers, build fires, float down the river, enjoy live music and go on adventures with her husband and three children.
