This backyard was designed by Giuseppe Abbrancati and installed by Gappsi in Babylon, Long Island NY. The layout incorporates a lower patio, a fire pit area with a sitting wall, and a bar area with a pergola built over it. This provides shade from the sun and accents the sitting area and the bar island. The upper patio is one step down from the backyard sliding doors, making it very easy and comfortable walking out into the backyard. A flowerbed defines the edge of the patio allowing room for flowers and a birdbath fountain. The main use of the raised patio is to accommodate the main large dining table and the cooking island for the grill and other outdoor appliances. Manufactured retaining walls were used to create the elevations and structure for the steps, columns, sitting walls, cooking island, and bar island. The floors were paved with ivory travertine, containing a color scheme of browns, beige, and white colors, to ornate this detailed and functional backyard setting.
