Located in Hicksville, NY, this in-ground swimming pool and backyard pool patio includes all the luxuries of a relaxing retreat, but with minimal maintenance. Upon entering the backyard, visitors are wisped away to a vacation-like atmosphere, seemingly miles away from the stresses of everyday life. With the soothing sounds of island music coming from the built-in outdoor surround sound system, guests are first greeted by a patch of artificial turf that requires touching to believe it’s not real lawn. The eye and ear is then seamlessly drawn to the powerful poolside view which frames the backside of the space.
Unilock Authorized Contractor, Above All Masonry serving Long Island, NY, incorporated a custom fire and water feature as the focal point of the space, sporting a gas-powered linear fire burner and triple waterfalls into the pool. Detailed with stone veneer featuring a color palette of buffs, tans, and blue-greys, the feature is centered beautifully with the large picture windows that sit opposite the pool. Providing a picturesque view from both the large outdoor dining table and from the homes interior, the fire/water feature is truly a show-stopper.
Effectively extending their home’s entertaining space for 3 seasons every year, these homeowners regularly entertain friends and family in style throughout the warmer months on Long Island. The end design features a series of individual spaces—outdoor dining, poolside lounging, and even walking the dog—that all work together in close proximity. The overall space ends up feeling extremely intimate. Whether lounging poolside on the patio furniture, or enjoying a dinner party in the dining room nook, their new backyard is the perfect retreat after a long week at the office.
The pool patio features Unilock’s Umbriano in Midnight Sky color which creates a smooth, clean-lined surface for enjoying the pool safely. Umbriano provides the natural look of granite with the durability and non-slip surface only a Unilock paver can offer.
Offsetting the texture of the Umbriano, as well as bringing a darker color contrast, Unilock’s Copthorne pavers in Basalt color form an accent border close to the pool’s edge. Unilock’s Ledgestone Coping in the Buff color plays nicely off of the much darker Copthorne.
Both Umbriano and Copthorne feature Unilock’s patented EnduraColor Plus Finish which provides long-lasting beauty through a proprietary blend of exclusive and superior ingredients. Blending some of nature’s highest performing minerals in granite and quartz, Unilock then combines color pigments that are highly resistant to fading under UV light and extreme weather conditions. This combination is used to create ultra-realistic surface textures and unique style options that are exceptionally durable.
