Travertine French Pattern Backyard Design In Kings Park NY

Travertine french pattern pavers and pool coping are installed in this backyard design in Kings Park NY. The project was designed by Giuseppe Abbrancati and built by the Gappsi team. The back yard was completely remodeled and included in the installation of a gunite swimming pool finished with super blue Diamond Brite plaster with porcelain tiles on the top of the water line as well as markers on steps, spa, and sundeck.

The pool is equipped with a gunite spa, a sundeck where lounge chairs can be placed in 12 inches of water, a bubbler jet on the sundeck, and LED lights. The backyard design included a 16×16 pavilion built over an outdoor kitchen with all twin eagle appliances. A retaining wall was built with poured concrete to retain the backyard but also used for a sheer descent water feature. The patio, pool coping and wall veneers consist of walnut travertine imported from Turkey, using a beige brown shade stone color very suitable for pool areas. Landscape lighting was also installed to create a peaceful ambiance at night time making this backyard layout a retreat for the happy homeowners. Gappsi designed, supplied, and installed the entire project.

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.

Gappsi offers complete services from design to installation of basketball courts. Asphalt basketball courts are very comfortable and safe to play on. The texture of asphalt makes it anti-slip in dry or wet weather. If you are looking for an Asphalt basketball court company near you, Gappsi personnel are well educated and knowledgeable about constructing asphalt courts. Most common courts built using asphalt are basketball, tennis, pickleball, and volleyball courts. Asphalt flooring is used for commercial municipal installation, but also for residential and private backyards too. Asphalt doesn’t require maintenance. Its black in color when it is newly installed and with time it weathers into a grayish color. It can be sealed, or it can also be painted with special asphalt paint in your desired colors, and striped to outline the court regulation lines. When a court is painted, the texture can become smoother and it could get a little slippery. It is recommended that a slip-resistant product is mixed with the paint before it is applied on the asphalt court. Gappsi, your professional Asphalt basketball court company, can create the court of your dreams at a great price, value, and top quality construction. 

 
In this particular installation we built a 30 x 30 basketball court. Eight inches of soil was excavated and removed from the site, then six inches of recycled concrete base was installed and compacted with a heavy mechanical plate. A 6×9 Nicolock paving stone border was installed around the perimeter to outline the edge of the court, which also reinforces the asphalt and keeps it from cracking in the future. An adjustable, regulation-size basketball hoop was installed, and across from it on the other side of the court, a flood light was installed on a 14 ft tall pole for the homeowners to be able to use the court at night. A net can also be attached to the poles to play volleyball. The asphalt was left unpainted and unsealed at the client request.
