If you are not wanting a large contrast between your paver patio and your border, you can use two very close, natural looking colors.
It’s all about accessories: Pots and Planters
Want to add additional character to your paver patio design? Adding colorful planters to your patio can create an oasis feel, without over stimulating the space. Most of the time we can physically build planters out of the brick paver material we are using to build your patio.

This simple trick will help create a harmonious design. You do not need to have a large space to make it functional. When thinking about how to make a small space appear larger, think about adding vertical height to your brick paver patio.
