Backyard Designed by Giuseppe Abbrancati and Installed by Gappsi Smithtown NYLetter from the Clients

When we decided to put a pool in last year we loved Gappsi’s ideas right from the beginning. Giuseppe’s vision for our backyard was exactly what we had imagined. The pool, the spill over spa, the stone work, landscaping, and the bar turned out just perfect. It transformed our yard into a resort! Giuseppe was an absolute pleasure to work with; I look forward to our next renovation and working with the Gappsi team again! Eileen & Chris

Complete backyard renovation designed by Giuseppe Abbrancati and built by Gappsi in Massapequa Park, Long Island NY.

Complete backyard renovation designed by Giuseppe Abbrancati and built by Gappsi in Massapequa Park, Long Island NY.The construction of the vinyl swimming pool concrete walls consisted of assembling aluminum molds while after the walls are then poured, reinforced with rebar. The pool floor base was made with dry-pack sand and cement materials to harden and avoided foot prints. One large light was installed in the deep end and one small light was installed in the shallow area. The pool also had two wide-mouth skimmers encased in the concrete walls along with four returns and two deep end bottom drains.
After the installation of the Loop-Loc textured liner, the coping and patio were installed using Fiorito and Moca travertine pavers. An ice chest was installed next to the pool bench in the shallow area for easy access to refreshments. A TimberTech deck was also built coming out of the sliding door with railings and steps. All pool equipment were from Pentair, including the gas heater, pumps and filter, and salt chlorine generator.

A new putting green was built in front of the gym room where it can be viewed from the inside through the large window facing the courtyard. As focal point, a large berm with landscaping and a pond-less water fall were built as a backdrop to the putting green, the entire courtyard surrounding it was graded and sods were installed throughout.

The family in this East Islip home wanted a pool for entertaining that was built to last. Giuseppe Abbrancati, owner/designer of Smithtown-based Gappsi, Inc. suggested a gunite saltwater pool in a Sports Pool style design where both sides of the pool are shallow and the deep end is in the middle. “Gunite pools make a statement. They are a very customizable pool. That is why you see a sundeck, round steps, and LED lights inside the pool. You can shape the cement any way you want it and apply any finish. They are also highly durable,” says Abbrancati who has been building pools for the last thirty years. “The deepest part of this pool is six feet. It’s built like that so you can play volleyball in the pool and its fair ground,” he adds. Abbrancati designed a classic rectangular-shaped pool that is 16 by 32 foot in size and has that sleek modern look. “Everyone in the Hamptons has the gunite rectangular shape. It is the most elegant,” he says. The pool, he explains, is a cobalt blue diamond bright with quartz finish. Before the installation, the house – that is close to a hundred years old- had a simple concrete patio. in order to keep the character of the home, Abbrancati chose a brick looking veneer that would blend in with the existing bricks to make it look like the pool was always there. “I didn’t want the pool to look like it was an addition. I wanted it to look like it was built with the house 100 years ago,” he says. Travertine pavers were added throughout. Additional features of the property that Abbrancati built was a sunken down natural fire pit made from rocks and lava and an L-shaped bench for seating.
One of the corners of the pool features a blue stone counter three feet wide that is designed to enjoy snacks and beverages poolside.
Seating inside the pool with stools built inside the pool made from veneer with glass tiles is an ideal spot for socializing.
A twelve-foot long natural gas fire pit runs alongside the pool so you can roast marshmallows and eat smores right from the pool. The fire accent is also a beautiful decorative feature that adds ambiance.
A sundeck is accessible on the shallow end of the pool and an ideal place to place a lounge chair.
To keep the pool pristine an ‘auto-cover’ was installed. With a push of a button – located next to the sliding door- the auto-cover opens and closes.
The pool has a gas heater and the temperature can go as high as 104 degrees. The average setting is between 80 to 85. The heater goes on automatically and the technology enables the homeowner to set the temperature that is comfortable for them.
