Pavers have become a popular choice for many homeowners. They are durable, highly customizable, require minimal upkeep, and add aesthetic value. Pavers come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. They are also multifunctional and can easily be incorporated into any design to match your unique style. Here are a few ways you can pair them to transform the look and feel of your landscape design.
Pair your pavers based on design pillars
Looking to pave your driveway, pool deck, or patio to match the look to the rest of your landscape design? An easy way to do so is to pair your pavers by color, texture, shape, or scale.
- Pairing by color
Whether your home follows a traditional or modern look, there are endless paver styles to choose from. If you love a monochromatic color palette, you can choose from a variety of Techo-Bloc pavers. We color match across our collections, making it easy to mix in different products of the same color. For example, you can match our Graphix retaining wall with our Blu 80 Smooth pavers in Beige Cream to achieve a seamless look. You can also choose different colors within the same product category since most of our products are available in 3-6 colors!
Did you know that you can also choose the color of your joints? The color of the sand you use to fill the joints can completely transform the look of your project. You can select a modern paver and create a more traditional or rustic design by choosing the right color of sand. Discover the Flexlock ultra sand collection that can enhance your landscape design as well as help your paving stones last longer.
- Pairing by texture
An easy way to create visual impact in your landscape design is to pair your pavers based on the element of texture. You can choose from different textures within the same product category to give your project a modern twist. Check out our Diamond Smooth and Granitex pavers for inspiration.
If you are looking to achieve a more consistent look across your steps, edges, floors, and driveway, you can choose the same texture across different product categories. This is a great option to obtain a natural and organic feel in your environment, and can easily fit your rustic or modern style preferences. If you’re more into a minimalist look, you can keep it simple using one texture across your landscape project to create a classic design. Rustic design enthusiast?

They are resistant to extreme cold weather and allow you to create a timeless design.
- Pair your pavers by shape
Another great way to create a uniquely stylish look is by mixing and matching different product shapes. You can create mosaics using a variety of paver shapes and take your design up a notch by mixing layout patterns such as Herringbone, chevron, cubic, or linear patterns. Incorporating the different design pillars can also elevate the look and feel of your landscape design.
- Pairing by scale
Most pavers come in different sizes, allowing you to mix and match to maximize impact.
You can choose the same product in two different sizes to create a look that makes them stand out while maintaining a seamless design. Check out our Blu 80 Polished pavers available in three sizes as well as our Industria Smooth collection in 16 sizes, allowing for countless layout possibilities.
Another alternative is to pick different products of the same size to create a trendy design. You can also create decorative bandings around large slabs using small pavers for a modern look.

Pair your pavers with accessories
When choosing pavers, it’s also important to consider the landscape style that you want to achieve. Does your choice of pavers reflect a modern, traditional, or rustic look? Keeping that in mind while choosing the accessories to match your design project will ensure that you achieve a harmonious look.
When it comes to lighting, you can incorporate lanterns to match your traditional design. If you prefer a soft rustic look you can opt for string lights in your backyard to create a pleasant ambiance. For a modern lighting option that matches your modern pavers, you can add hardscape lighting.
Adding greenery and plants can help you create an inviting space. If you opted for traditional pavers, you can include hydrangeas to tie in the look. Modern style lovers can opt for cactuses.
Another element to consider when pairing your pavers is your furniture choices. Clever furniture pieces tie spaces together and can easily be switched out to transform a traditional style into a modern one. A rustic feel can be achieved by incorporating wood pieces that pair nicely with your natural-looking pavers.
