Light Up Springfield was established June 2016 by our owners, Scott & Julie Shadwick. Below is our story as told by Scott.
After 15 years of working in the landscape industry, my wife and I realized it was time to start our own outdoor lighting design and installation company. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you Light Up Springfield & Irrigation. Here is a little bit more about me and my family.
I am 38 years old, born and raised in Rogersville MO. My wife Julie, born and raised in Ozark. My wife and I share the same small town, hard work and family values that important to the Ozarks heritage. The Shadwick family along with Light Up Springfield & Irrigation are proud and honored to bring you these small-town relationship values with a strong commitment to your doorstep. Julie and I started our family 12 years-ago when we became married on April 23rd, 2005. We are the proud parents of our three beautiful children Kayleigh, Eli & Jaxen. Our dog Cooper could never go without recognition as he is huge part of our family, all 110lbs of him and our newest addition puppy Charley. We happily reside and raise our children in Ozark MO.
My lighting industry tenure goes back to May 2002. I started working for the nation’s largest family owned wholesale irrigation and landscape supply company here in Springfield MO. I worked there for twelve years climbing the ranks to management. Most of my time was spent trying to market more irrigation and outdoor lighting to other contractors. It became quite the addiction. Such an addiction that in June of 2013, I received an amazing opportunity to become a sales manager for a worldwide manufacturer of professional quality irrigation and landscape lighting products, Hunter Industries/FX Luminaire. During my four years at the manufacturing level, I traveled seven states focusing on sales support and training for wholesale distributors and landscape contractors for landscape irrigation and landscape lighting design. One of my duties was making strong relationships with the top three lighting contractors in each of the major markets I traveled to. Taking the time to complete job site visits, perform site studies, troubleshooting, training and design work with all these lighting contractors and their employees. During my time as a manufacture representative, I also received to honor of becoming a graduate of ILLI, better known as the International Landscape Lighting Institute. This is a full one week intensive hands on design course taught by world renowned lighting designers. This class is the only one of its kind in the world. We are proud and honored to be one of two outdoor lighting designers and installers in the state of Missouri to have earned these design credentials from ILLI. My true passion is landscape lighting, with irrigation and turf grass fighting for 2nd and 3rd. My family has come to the realization that the only way for me to truly live to my passion is to bring it to your doorstep and make our dreams your reality.
