Gappsi recently just finished a beautiful Dog Run in the Head of the Harbor, Long Island, NY.  The customer was having no luck in maintaining a  lawn in the area used by the dogs.  In fact when we arrived on site the lawn was completely dead after new sod had been installed earlier this year.  Rather than suggesting replacing the lawn again or offering a messy gravel alternative or making an unsightly concrete dog run I suggested that the customer consider using synthetic turf.  Synthetic Turf has come a long way over the past decade and is now a great alternative to other less aesthetically pleasing options for dog runs.  The product we use is made from recycled materials and is 100% Eco-Friendly which means that 100% of it can be recycled again.  It comes in a variety of natural looking color combinations and a few different lengths.  It looks even better than real turf. There is also an extreme cost savings compared to natural turf because synthetic turf is virtually maintenance free. No weekly mowings! No sprinkler system! No Fertilizer! No dangerous and harmful pesticides!

The process is simple and can be installed around existing Trees, Shrubs, Ponds, Pools, Decks without any damage done. The first step involves removing the existing turf and any other organic material that could decompose in the future. Next we compact the subgrade and install a geotextile fabric to prevent base contamination and this also serves as a weed barrier.  We then install 2- 4 inches of coarse crushed aggregate and level to a rough grade.  After the rough grade is achieved we compact the entire area.  Next we install plastic bender board around the perimeter of the area  and  a finer crushed aggregate is put down (1-2 inches) and compacted once again creating the final grade.  Next we lay out the pieces of turf and perform rough cuts.   Once the area is laid out and the pieces have been given some time to acclimate we perform the final cuts and secure all seams and edges.  Edges are either stapled directly to the subgrade bender board or pinned to the subgrade using galvanized pins.  The seams are held together using a special tape and adhesive along with galvanized pins.  Paving Stone Select / Gappsi Group established in Smithtown, Long Island, New York, USA,  is a natural stone wholesale / Importer Distributor and installer of the fallowing items: pavers and stone veneers   of marble, granite, travertine, Sandstones, Limestone, Bluestones, quartzite, porphyry, slate, Onyx and coral pavers, stones & veneers .
