Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island

Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island

Travertine Patios And Pools On Long IslandGappsi designed and completed the landscaping and Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island recently in a home located in Yaphank, NY.  Gappsi installed a freeform vinyl pool with a gunite spa spilling into the pool. Three structures were built including a gazebo, a pavilion, and a pergola; since the property is surrounded by woods populated by deer we decided to screen the gazebo for bugs also.

Backyard Gunite Spa with G035 Travertine Pavers

The home’s backyard was built on two levels so Gappsi utilized natural stone borders to retain the hearth and create a more natural look as well. The freeform vinyl pool is 18 x36, with the deepest part of the pool only 5 1/2 feet. There is a gradual slope on the bottom with the walls being straight down. The stairs that were installed are in the shallow area and we added 3 built-in stools in the pool to sit and relax poolside.

The spa that was added is a gunite spa finished with super blue diamond brights. This pavilion was built to add a shaded area while relaxing near the pool with a pergola for a lounge chair. The patio was paved with G035 travertine selected from the Gappsi stone collection and the veneer on the spa is also G035 travertine. The entire backyard has a very beautiful setting and layout.  The homeowners will enjoy the backyard for many many years to come along with all the family members.

Why Consider a Travertine Pool Deck?

One of the best reasons to consider these pavers is purely aesthetic. They provide a unique look that, when compared with other pavers, makes your patio or pool deck stand out amongst others in your neighborhood! An essential part of buying a pool is thinking about the best pool deck for your family. Travertine tile pool patios are increasingly popular because they are slip, heat, and mold resistant.  Travertine is a natural form of sedimentary limestone. It develops around natural spring mineral deposits, leading to distinctive swirls throughout the limestone. Due to the travertine tiles’ layered, mottled texture and beauty, the ancient Romans favored it as a building material.

Travertine pavers are ideal because they stay cool to the touch; Perfect for Barefoot-in!.

Simply by designing the yard with travertine pool pavers the customer increased the safety of their pool area by providing a stable, slip-resistant surface. The porous stones are naturally rough and even more so when they are wet making the surface slip-resistant.

Use Travertine Paving Stones in the following places:

  • pool decks
  • patios
  • decorative walls
  • stairs
  • fireplaces
  • driveway

Benefits of Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island

Travertine is eco-friendly
All travertine stones are eco-friendly as they adopt an environment-friendly manufacturing process as opposed to marble. In addition, this stone is super low maintenance; they stay intact much longer, thus avoiding the need to replace them regularly.

Extremely durable
Due to Travertiens’s ability to withstand heat and extreme temperatures, travertine pool pavers are known to be extremely durable, thus making them ideal for all outdoor projects.  For example driveways, walkways, patios, and pools; enjoy your barbeques and parties.

Water Absorbency
Concrete pavers do absorb some water where tiles do not, and neither does flagstone. Since water is constantly present around a swimming pool, especially if it is heavily used by children choosing travertine pavers is smart because it absorbs more water than other paving materials.

Non-Fading
Better paving materials today are fade resistant, but in the face of the sun, over the years even pavers do lose some color. Travertine pool decks are natural stones whose color is permanent versus dyes that are long-lasting or fade-resistant.

No Efflorescence
What is that? Efflorescence is a powdery white deposit that’s commonly seen on concrete surfaces and requires cleaning to remove it.

Travertine-Patios-And-Pools-On-Long-Island2

While this isn’t part of our list above of reasons for suggesting travertine for patios and pools the fact is that it is hugely popular. This isn’t a fad or trend; it’s been in big demand for patios and pool decks for several years now, and instead of showing signs of losing favor as a trend does, the requests for travertine paving in the backyard continue to grow.

Are You Ready To Level Up Your Yard?

When looking to remodel your pool deck, having a selection of colors and sizes to choose from makes the process all the more enjoyable. At Gappsi you can select from an array of travertine deck pavers’ colors, sizes, designs, and patterns. No matter your taste, finding the right paver for your style is simple!

Work With a Contractor For Maintaining Your Travertine Pool Deck

Although travertine tiles are water-resistant, they may gradually appear stained. Further, if your travertine pool deck is close to loose soil, dirt can become trapped in the natural pores.

Fortunately, you can easily prevent this by sealing your deck every three to five years. Although you’re not required to seal your deck, you’ll be grateful that you did so a few years down the road.  Your pool contractor can replace damaged tiles or may recommend a cleaning and sealing of your pool’s patio.

If you clean your travertine tiles on a regular basis, you shouldn’t need much help from a contractor to repair or replace them.

Kid Friendly Backyard Ideas

Kid Friendly Backyard Ideas

g038 marble pavers

Playing outside and spending quality time enjoying nature is an essential part of childhood so designing a kid friendly backyard is important. It is an experience that many of us from a previous generation enjoyed far more easily than those born today.

When designing an outdoor space safety is a clear priority, but so are look, feel, and function. A kid scape only works when it is attractive, functional, and enjoyable to be in, otherwise, neither kids nor adults will use it.

Take a look at this makeover in Syosset where Gappsi designed a Kid Friendly Backyard. This makeover included:

G038 Marble Pavers Backyard Patio Design

Gappsi installed G038 marble pavers for the entire backyard patio design.  Gappsi designers chose a walnut travertine veneer for the walls and the sitting walls. This system is great for retaining walls, sitting walls, and columns that will show a more natural stone character.  The sitting wall is also a retaining wall to hold the flower bed between the pool and the basketball court.

Synthetic Turf Floor

Gappsi installed next synthetic turf floor.  Synthetic turf is UV stabilized to protect against color fading; unlike natural turf that will have to deal with diseases, drought, and dormancy, artificial grass has the benefits of looking great 24/7 all year long. It can also be used to spruce up spaces where it isn’t feasible to grow a lawn.

Often synthetic turf is promoted as environmentally friendly because homeowners do not have water, to fertilize or mow their lawns anymore, reducing emissions by no longer being dependent on gas-powered machines.

Maintenance is often said to be nonexistent for synthetic turf, but if homeowners do want their artificial turf to last as long as possible, there is some maintenance needed.

High-Quality Trampolines Everyone Will Love!

We provide high-quality in-ground, above-ground trampolines, and playground equipment. Let us help you find the perfect trampoline for your family. We’ve been creating safe and fun backyard memories for decades.

When getting ready to put a trampoline inground there are many things to consider. First, do you have space? Make sure you leave yourself adequate space around the trampoline with an enclosure should the kids land outside of the jumping area. You should give yourself at least 18ft overhead clearance and 6ft clearance on each side of the trampoline.

What makes our Trampolines Great?

  • Heavy-Duty Frames – provide stability, support, and safety; they also last longer.
  • The Bounce in the Springs – the more springs and the longer the spring length, the better the bounce experience. Stainless steel, tapered springs provide the longest lasting and best bouncing springs for trampolines.
  • The Jump Bed – Also referred to as the jump mat, this part of the trampoline is one area you don’t want to skimp. Made of a high-grade polypropylene material that is smooth to the touch, this is what handles all the tension and safely catches you after each bounce. The stitching surrounding the bed is critical for strength and durability and that is why all our jump beds have a minimum of 8 rows of stitching.
  • Safety Frame Pad – This important safety piece should be at least 1” thick and be in a UV-treated vinyl covering that will have low wear and long life. The pad should secure tightly and cover the frame and springs.

Kid-Friendly-Backyard-InGround-TrampolineSports Game Courts

Make your backyard an all-weather sports zone and a gathering place for family and friends with a multi Sports Game Court from Gappsi. Enjoy a setting where basketball, racquet sports, volleyball, shuffleboard, and more are all in play, and do so in a safe environment that provides you the peace of mind of knowing where your children are.

Gappsi backyard sports game courts feature the best of what our high-performance surfaces have to offer. This sports game court was designed on regulation asphalt.  Experience the game you love on a floor built with stress reduction in mind. Play with the same hoops system the pros use and set your children on a course of enjoying the games they love in the comfort and safety of their own backyard.

Choose from our many beautiful patterns and enjoy your remodeled, revitalized new pool!

Self-Contained Outdoor Water Fountains

Self-Contained Outdoor Water Fountains

Self-Contained Outdoor Water Fountains2

Self-contained outdoor water fountains are an elegant finishing touch to projects and spaces large or small.  An outdoor fountain can turn a simple outdoor living space into an inviting and relaxing area. Choosing the right fountain for your landscaping décor is a combination of personal preference and practicality keep in mind.

Which Fountain Is Best For Your Project?

  • Source Of Power – Outdoor fountains have a variety of power options with the two most common being hardwired and solar-powered, you can choose which is best for the project.
  • Water Source – Fountains often are connected to the property’s water supply for a convenient supply right to the unit. The other fountain type uses a hose and a pump that re-circulates water through the fountain on a continuous basis.
  • Lighting Options – While some fountains have lights, you can also place lights around the fountain where you want to illuminate it. When deciding on outdoor lighting you can also consider amber lights.  They offer a more soothing effect versus multicolored lights that provides a more fun element to the area.
  • FInishes – The fountain’s finish is a primarily aesthetic consideration that requires you to take the surrounding area into account and then decide.

SCHEDULE A MEETING TODAY WITH GAPPSI

  • Location Matters – If the fountain requires a constant water supply or a hardwired energy source, taking the location of water lines and electrical connections into consideration is critical.  The location of the fountain is one of the most important choices you have to make.
  • Complimentary Decor – Most people opt to dress up the area with complementary décor.  For example, a paved path leading to the fountain or a water feature around the fountain are two possible options to consider.
  • Water Efficiency – Some outdoor fountains have re-circulating pumps for water efficiency if you do not have a constant water source available.  This fountain type uses the same water until the water needs to be drained or until it evaporates.
  • Cleaning The Fountain – Having a scummy layer of algae can make your fountain look terrible.   Keeping it clean is important but there are some fountains that have a cleaning cycle that can help save you time.
  • Winter Care – People who are in locations that experience freezing temperatures during the winter months will need to care for their fountain to prevent cracking when the water freezes.

Self-Contained Outdoor Water Fountains

Self-Contained Outdoor Water Fountain in Smithtown, NY

The above picture is a self-contained outdoor water fountain with a water reservoir underground to collect the water.

  • Veneered walls using beige travertine split face and tumbled stone.
  • The self-contained outdoor water fountain walls used 2 inches of tumble coping.
  • The sheer waterfall descends over the lion faces, which spouts water adding to the wall spillover features.
  • Bursts of colorful flower pots were added to the steps of the wall on the fountain.
  • A picture of the family pet was added behind the fountain.
  • Large brightly colored red flower pots were added to brighten the area and in addition, add a pop of color.

Gappsi added in the front of the fountain a fire pit area for all to enjoy the fountain and zen it created. The entire setting is very peaceful with the relaxing sound of the water fountain.

Backyard Ideas And Poolscapes On Long Island

Backyard Ideas And Poolscapes

Backyard Ideas And Poolscapes2

Are you looking for backyard ideas and poolscapes to level up your backyard?  Summertime is here and it’s time to enjoy those long summer nights while being in the comforts of your home.

One refreshing way to enjoy your backyard and beat the heat is to take a dip in a swimming pool. Today’s in-ground pools go way beyond the turquoise-lined rectangular shapes that quickly began to populate backyards.  Many people now want poolscapes with built-in waterfalls, surrounding gardens, and organic shapes making your pool a beautiful element added to your backyard landscape.

What is a Poolscape?

A poolscape is simply the landscape surrounding any pool, along with the shape and the type of pool itself. There are a plethora of options when it comes to the general design and within each theme even more options for the type of greenery and other decorative items you may want. You can choose to play a hand in the design of the poolscape yourself, higher a professional designer, or rely on the expertise of a contractor. No matter how you choose to design your pool, it is essential you hire a professional to put it all together.  People use combinations of these ideas below along with all kinds of greenery.

General Poolscape Categories

  • Asian Landscapes
  • Bank Checks – This will incorporate a retaining wall
  • English Landscape
  • Tropical
  • Hawaiian
  • Fireplace
  • Outdoor kitchen
  • Garden
  • Waterfalls
  • Much more

Backyard Ideas And Poolscapes

You May be Wondering What Is Right For Me?

The right type of poolscape all depends on personal preference; however, there are some things to keep in mind. First is the size of your yard which, may limit your options. Next is the type of ground you have on your property because it determines the amount of work it will take to create the look you want,  For instance, areas with the hard ground or desert areas may be more expensive when it comes to installing a lot of greenery or a tropical setting because it is dryer and the ground is harder.

What Type of Features Do You Want?

There are many options like waterfalls, ponds, and fountains to choose from to mention a few popular ones. The actual shape of the pool is a consideration too. Some backyard ideas and poolscapes may look better with a rectangular design, others will compliment curved pools.

Before choosing the style you like you will want to look at plenty of examples, catalogs, and websites. Remember, once construction is underway it might be difficult to change your mind.

How much will it cost?

Price really will vary, whatever you spend, you can be sure that a great design will improve the value of your home and will improve the quality of your time spent in the backyard.

Why do I need a contractor?

A contractor is essential for a large job.  Doing the job the right way the first time will ensure a backyard you can be proud of. Many of the features may be difficult for one not familiar and experienced with creating poolscapes, meaning not hiring a professional can take much longer and can even become more expensive in wasted time and resources.

The pool and surrounding features go hand-in-hand to create an all-encompassing project. A pool contractor will work with you throughout designing your pool project to accommodate the land it will be built on and will collaborate with you and a landscaper to see that design come to life as the pool is being built.

Flamed Granite Pavers For Driveways

Flamed Granite Pavers For Driveways

Flamed Granite pavers driveway

Why should you use Granite Pavers when paving your driveway?

Granite is a very common type of rock, flamed granite is another hard-wearing granite paver you can use. The flamed finish provides that extra grip surface. The flames granite is very dense because it has been torched with a flame to cause an exfoliated finish, commonly known as a “Flamed” finish.  The flamed finish provides the stone with a high grip surface, hence its popularity for domestic and commercial jobs.

Gappsi’s Flamed Granite Pavers are widely used in the home, on patios, decks, and around commercial properties. Granite has been used in construction for tens of thousands of years now. It is a popular stone also due to its very tough and durable nature along with an abundant stone.  Most granite deposits are massive making the cost lower compared to some of the other types of stone used in construction. Granite is quite beautiful and is often preferred in areas where style is the primary concern as opposed to the functionality of the area the stone is used in.

What is the texture & color of granite?

Granite has a coarse to medium texture and can come in a wide range of colors including shades of pink and grey. The color depends entirely on the chemistry and different minerals making up the stone. Generally, different areas will have stones of a slightly different shade and a common feature is the different colors within any slab of stone. The overall hue will usually range from gray to pink, but within are shades of both pink and gray are tan, black, and white as well as a clear or shiny crystal.

Granite Pavers Used In Construction

Most projects are completed and installed over a recycled concrete base (RCA) then the flamed granite pavers are installed over one inch of sand with Surebond polymeric sand to fill the joints between the pavers. Additionally, gray granite Belgian blocks are used to retain the earth next to driveway borders.

We created a compass star aligned with the door, to highlight the entrance to the house. It’s a circular driveway with a separate driveway for the garage doors. The color of the pavers matches the roof tiles of the house, a combination of beige maroon rust and the blue limestone for the aprons of all the entrances of the driveway. The installation of the driveway started with the excavation of the soil and the installation of the RCA base.

Flamed Granite Pavers Driveway

The driveway in the pictures above was constructed using a 10-inch RCA base, and granite:

  • The pavers were installed on one inch of fine sand
  • Paving stone sizes were 6”x 9” with a flamed and tumbled texture finish.
  • The flamed granite pavers are 1-1/4” thick
  • Flamed granite pavers are a great choice because they can be used for pedestrian and vehicular trafficked areas.
  • The joints in between the pavers were filled with polymeric sand, then compacted with a mechanical vibratory plate and sealed.

To learn more about Gappsi products, please contact us at 631-543-1177 or visit our showroom.

That is not to say there are not a number of advantages though:
1. Granite is durable, it is a very hard stone and will last for years with little or no wear. In fact, many who carve monuments have begun switching from marble to granite due to increased acid rain, which over years will degrade the marble more so than granite.
2. Granite is beautiful because it comes in a wide range of shades, plus polished granite can be a truly stylish addition to nearly any home or building.
3. Granite compared to other stones is more affordable due to its abundance.

Rock waterfall construction in Lake Grove NY

Rock waterfall construction in Lake Grove NYThis waterfall it’s been designed and built by Gappsi in Lake Grove NY as part of a large backyard project that includes a custom gunite swimming pool, pavilion, patio, and full landscaping. Natural Long Island boulders were used for the risers and bluestone shelves for the water cascades. We created steps on both sides of the grotto, on the waterfall side, and by the slide, for the kids to get to the top of the grotto and jump in the pool. For the landscaping, we used small plants and grasses to decorate the waterfall and slide, and evergreens along the back to create privacy from the neighboring house.
