Dumpsters as an artistic medium

“We cannot live only for ourselves.  A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and along those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”                                                                                                                                                    Herman Melville

As profound a statement as the above is, Faulks Bros. Construction takes those words and works them into what we do as a company and what we do throughout our community.  A fun and complete example is how we use dumpsters as an artistic medium.

This project started about 15 years ago.  One of the owners of Faulks Bros decided that after decades of seeing ugly, beat up dumpsters throughout the community, there was an opportunity to connect art in an area that is least expected and leaves a lasting impression.  The birth of this program began. We stay connected by giving local artists of all backgrounds new canvases to create on.  Local high school students, exchange students, as well as more experienced artists have painted our dumpsters.

Using this unique canvas, the artists have tackled a number of interesting subjects.  Dumpsters depict our love of the environment with typical outdoor scenes inspired by Wisconsin nature.  Dumpsters reflect our passion for the humane treatment of our four-legged friends.  Dumpsters showcase the pride that we have for country, state, and city.  Dumpsters display our love for our company in a super creative manner. The actions captured in the scenes and causes they represent pop up in the middle of your construction zone, a touch of decoration in a least expected place.

The success of the dumpster program comes with the public attention they do draw.  People NOTICE them.  We have found that many of our valued customers outside the city limits don’t usually appreciate the “Go Comets” dumpster. Putting art on an unexpected canvas leaves a lasting impression on you, your neighbors, your community members, an impression YOU have the occasion to provide.  If life gives you the opportunity to make a mess, consider renting a dumpster that will leave a positive effect on those around you.

Dumpsters, who knew?  Whatever your particular taste, cause, or art flavor we have something that will work for you.  Faulks Bros. will pick-up and deliver your mobile piece of art.  Just give us a call. When your dirty job needs something to shine light on it choose a dumpster with a splash of art to brighten your world!

Transformation through Landscaping

Welcome yourself to a whole new world in your home territory through landscaping.  Simple changes can transform your property into the functional outdoor swank spot that will be the envy of all your neighbors and friends.  You will love living local and relish in what you created.

Landscaping projects can be as big or small as you like.  There are so many possibilities for your land:  soothing water features, basic curb appeal, complete outdoor living space, waterfront ambiance, natural habitats, a grower’s haven.  You’re only limited by your imagination.  Faulks Bros is here to get you set up, provide the right materials, and complete your landscape transformation.

 

Bring on the swank!  Check out the photos of some of the projects we have completed.  The materials used are all local.  Gravel in several varieties for driveways, water front applications, or whimsical paths through gardens.  Landscaping stones of all shapes, sizes, colors will complement and accentuate wherever they are placed.  Top-of-the-line topsoil keeps vegetation happy and thriving. Have a place to put a boulder and make it a focal point, we have plenty!  Fire pits can be decoratively edged. Water features can have flashy stones to flow over. Flat  surfaces provide unique space for outdoor furniture.  Decks and patios will be enhanced and look divine.  Stone can add structure, crisp lines, and highlight your outdoor showcase.

Imagining a bigger landscape transformation?  Let us renew your property.  Total land clearing, pond digging, tree transplanting, foundation excavation, driveway grading and other big jobs are a breeze to our team.

How to start the transformation?  Give Freddie a call.  Faulks’ Bros excavation team will arrive. Plans, permitting help, equipment, products, and man-power – we deliver on all.  Our team will sit down, make a plan, and begin to execute.  Before you know it, you will be enjoying the outcome of your plans; your glamour spot will be constructed, cleaned-up and ready for company.

 

Make your BACKYARD a BACKROOM.  Create landscaping with ambiance, livability and appeal.  Back yards can become a better place to hang out than your living rooms.  Bonus, you enjoy the fresh air and increase your property value all in one.
