Selecting hardscape colors

If you choose colors that are an exact match to the home or buildings, separate the two with plantings to add contrast Use contrasting colors  that match different aspects of the home Fro example, if the building is light colored with a dark roof, choosing a dark colored stone might complement nicely. Blend the color and texture to the architectual style present. A brick exterior might be complemented nicely by a straight-faced wall; brighter colors or beveled face styles work well with comptemporary architecture. When using pavingstones, contrast the color to the walls If you have a dark pavingstone patio, choose a lighter, complementary color for the wall.
