Swimming Pool, Patio, walls and landscaping Sands Point long island designed and installed by gappsi

A pool had recently been completed in this sloping Long Island backyard. The clients contacted Gappsi of Smithtown for their landscape design and installation.
Gappsi developed a design which blended the multiple levels of the backyard, allowing guests at the upper elevation at the house to interact more naturally with guests at the lower pool-side elevation.

The Finished Project:
The upper patio of the multi-level patio system was installed off the sliding glass doors of the dining room. It accommodates al fresco dining and contains an outdoor kitchen area. A granite topped outdoor serving bar and counter contains a built-in barbeque grill with warming drawer, an outdoor refrigerator and space for storage. Dappled shade is provided by an overhead pergola for a more comfortable dining experience during the summer months. The retaining wall doubles as a seat wall when the family is entertaining a large group. A set of gently curving, arched steps lead from the upper patio onto a lower patio.

This lower patio is a conversation and entertaining area furnished with comfortable outdoor furniture. The seating surrounds a stone fire pit. Its broad rim provides a place for beverages and it extends outdoor living by many weeks. It is the highlight of many cool evening family gatherings. Another set of gently curving arched steps lead to the pool patio.

Lounging pool side is a favorite family activity. The pool patio has space for four lounge chairs, occasional tables and ample room for pool side games and activities. A comfortable and interactive relationship exists between the different “garden rooms”. Travertine Natural Stone had been selected by the clients as their choice of paving material, and it was used throughout the yard and as the pool coping to establish unity and connectivity. With careful attention to detail and a quality custom landscape installation, Gappsi has developed a backyard for these clients to be enjoyed for many years to come.
