Beautifying Long Island Communities Program. By Gappsi Pools
Gappsi is a provider of home improvements to long island homeowners and businesses.
Our services include: swimming pools, landscape, masonry, carpentry and natural stones,
Designing, supplying and installation. As a way of showing appreciation to the communities we serve we would like to give back, as a thank you for our prosperity as a local company. Thanks to all our past and future costumers whom we have and will serve, that has made our success possible. We are giving our services and material for free to improve our communities schools; the idea was brought up by Gappsi masonry co-owner Michael Specchio.

Michael Specchio has been a resident of Smithtown all his life and has attended all Smithtown schools from kindergarten to elementary to middle school and graduated from Smithtown high school in 1996, Michael Specchio attention to detail has always been a key element of Mike’s personality that has made him the designer and the businessman that he is today. And it has been a life long dream to improve the entrance of the last school that he attended before pursuing his dream of masonry home improvement entrepreneurship.

Along with all other Gappsi divisions from Giuseppe Abbrancati from the supplying division, to Rolando Adamovicz from the landscape division to Kevin Anderson of the swimming pool division to Charles Cocchiola of the carpentry home remolding division all joined in to create this new company program, Gappsi gives back to long island schools and communities. Starting with the Smithtown high school which is located about one mile east of Gappsi’s corporate headquarters, we will reach every school on long island one school at time.

We designed and installed a beautiful multi level wall with pillars to surround the Smithtown High School sign. The material used is Hanover chapel wall in tan bland color with moca travertine caps built on a 3 feet deep poured concrete footing a PVC sign with gold leaf lettering mounted to the 2 main center columns. And when we were landscaping this commercial project we had to keep in mind several things, such as low maintenance and providing an elegant look to last all year. The landscaping consists of several different groupings of evergreens. These evergreens were picked for their textures and variegated colors. Specimen plants were planted in specific locations to frame the rest of the landscape and final touches of annuals were added to bring color throughout the spring and summer seasons.

Specific plantings that were used for this project are as follows:

            Blue Spruce Nest

            Holly Maservae

            Euonymus ‘Silver King’

            Barberry ‘Pygmy’

            Kalmia Japonica

            Dwarf Pennisetum

            Boxwood ‘Green Velvet’
