Town Hall affords the opportunity to create beautiful contrasts. Opt for borders that feature dark accents to make these warm color options really pop.

Softscape features like small trees, shrubbery, and flower beds can be added just beyond borders to help make walkways pop with the contrast. For more inspiration about what you can do with your walkways and front entrances, you can visit a Unilock Outdoor Idea Center near you.
Another way that brick pavers can be used to enhance front yard style is to highlight softscapes.
