Freeform-Gunite-Swimming-Pool1Making the decision to build a custom freeform gunite swimming pool in your own backyard is exciting! Imagine a beautiful oasis with custom water features for relaxing and spending time with family and friends.

What Pool Shapes Are Available? Geometric and Freeform

A lot of thought should go into your pool shape and style. There are several factors that will play a part in determining that shape. Function is a big factor. It’s important to know what you want to be able to use the pool for and to consider all the users. Will it be a family-oriented pool that will incorporate a diving board, slide, grotto or other features your kids may enjoy? Or, maybe the pool’s primary function is to provide an oasis from the New York heat, someplace to unwind from a busy week where every feature revolves around escape and relaxation.

If that’s the case you may want to incorporate features like a shallow tanning reef, swim-up bar, or a relaxing water feature. It is easy to extend the use of your pool into the cooler months by adding a spa, fire pit, or outdoor kitchen area and incorporating it into the design.

Yard space is an important consideration when adding a pool to your property.  You may need a strategic pool design to make the most of a small or oddly shaped yard, or perhaps you have more space than you literally know what to do with. Both are scenarios that our experienced designers and pool builders at Gappsi know how to deal with.

Freeform Pools Gunitre Pool

Freeform custom pools are those taking on any shape and form. There’s no certain geometric shape such as a square or rectangle. Instead, freeform design (sometimes also referred to as a radius pool), has no set rules or shapes.  It can take on any curvilinear form.

Freeform-Gunite-Swimming-PoolWhen you start to plan out your swimming pool installation with Gappsi, you will have the option of creating a freeform design for your pool area. Unlike traditional swimming pools, which contain rigid, geometric shapes, freeform pools have an organic look and feel. Gappsi has plenty of experience with pool installation and will be able to help you plan out a freeform pool that matches beautifully with your backyard.

There are a few terrific benefits to the freeform swimming pool. When you create a freeform pool, you will be able to create a one-of-a-kind design for your backyard. Small pools are particularly suited to a freeform design because they can be crafted to look like natural water elements. You may also find that your swimming pool maintenance requirements are lower when you create a freeform design. Overall, planning a freeform pool will allow you to express your personality and sense of style.

Freeform pools are made up of soft curves. These gunite pools can be built in an infinite amount of pool shapes. Contemporary freeform pools often have natural rock or waterfall features that are designed to resemble a natural lake, lagoon, or oasis. They are usually surrounded by lush landscaping and blend seamlessly with the rest of the yard.

Gunite freeform pools can be built into almost any yard including those oddly shaped, limited space, or homes that have a sloping landscape. Our gunite pools can be built with a wide range of features that can include:

  • Beach entry or built-in steps
  • Deeper areas for diving pools
  • Built-in seating
  • Built-in tables or bar areas
  • Tanning reefs
  • Waterfalls, fountains and bubblers
  • Spas & Grottos

Freeform-Gunite-Swimming-Pool2Freeform Gunite Swimming Pool Built in East Northport NY

Gappsi designed this freeform gunite swimming pool in East Northport NY. This is a very large swimming pool with a 9-foot deep end. In the shallow area, we built a sundeck with steps across in twelve-inch deep water. We used porcelain tiles, a very close combination of colors. Our team built a natural-looking waterfall at the deep end of the pool using moss rocks.  We made the moss rocks to also double as the diving rock. In addition, the shelf to the waterfall can be used as a diving board to jump into the pool. Around the pool area, we installed Blue Limestone on the patio in a French pattern and finished the pool is white quartz.

The pool coping is 12-inch by 2-inch thick limestone selected from the Gappsi Natural Stone Collection. The customer has a very large patio which includes a Breeo Fire Pit on one side of the yard. The Breeo Fire Pit is perfect for summer night fires while enjoying the view of the pool. This is the latest Gappsi backyard project in East Northport NY.


review-from-a-customer-whiteI highly recommend Gappsi! Giuseppe designed our entire backyard and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I love the automatic cover for our pool and our synthetic turf grass. Anytime we have anyone come over, they always compliment our marble stone patio and retaining wall. Giuseppe was great to work with and would answer all of our questions so quickly – there was always an open line of communication throughout our backyard renovation. Looking forward to creating many memories in our new backyard thanks to Gappsi!

Gunite To Vinyl Conversion on Long Island

Gunite To Vinyl Conversion on Long IslandThis Gunite swimming pool was built in 1960 and it lasted for about 60 years, in the last 4 years for some strange reason the pool shel started developing some cracks and got worse every year to the point that the pool totally cracked in half and started licking badly to the point of not being repareble. The cost of replacing this gunite swimming pool would have been tremendous and the clients had no budget for that. Not only the cost of redoing the pool but also the cost of removing the old pool and all the damage that would have accrued to the yard and the landscaping , irrigation fence and the entire patio would have needed to be replaced. We proposed to remodel the pool and reshape the inside to accommodate a custom vinyl liner, we added a sundeck with 12 inches of water and reshape the pool deep end to make it more with straight ankles instead of a bowl shape that it’s usually a gunite. This gunite swimming pool conversion came out very nice. We used a liner with a pattern of a terrazzo looking finish that makes the pool look like it’s a gunite pool with no border at the top. When doing a Gunite To Vinyl Conversion it’s expected that the liner might show some imperfections or some minor wrincles, the clients has to understand that a vinyl pool construction is built with angles a gunite pool is more rounded shaped inside, and the liners are a little more difficult to be measured.

Porcelain Pavers Installed in Huntington NY

Porcelain Pavers Installed in Huntington NYJust completed this renovation of the Gunite pool. We installed a brand new porcelain random pattern patio. This pool was all renovated and re marble dusted with white marble dust bluestone coping and brand new tiles. We were able to finish it through the winter.   The weather has been so perfect to work outside better than the summer.   We installed all new equipment and all new plumbing for the pool. We did not close the pool this winter  because we just finished the patio  and we did the marble dust  like two weeks ago  the end of January.   We kept this tree in the middle of the patio.  It was an existing beautiful tree.  We trimmed the steps with the bluestone and the water fountain is still covered. We will came back in the summer time to retake the video.
