There was a small patio where I am renting using pavers, I tried to match, but the ones I ended up with are a shade lighter, what can I use to even out or darken them to match, also have scolloped edgers that need to be darkened to match as well.

    You could try staining the entire patio and go heavier on the lighter ones. Or you could paint the entire patio and you'll be assured of one even color.

    • Yes, stain for sure. I had all different colored patio stones, lots were given to us hence the different colors. We bought a can of stain from Home Depot . They looked beautiful now!

    Get some extras and experiment with matching up by staining the new ones a shade darker. Conventional stain for wood can be used or even shoe polish in liquid form. As tile ages and is exposed to normal weather, wear, tear and dirt it darkens just a tad.

    When I had this problem, I shopped all the tile stores since they are man-made and few are alike.

    I bought Safavieh indoor-outdoor rugs online for my deck that gets too hot in the sun for my cats or me if I am barefoot. Sun, rain, after two years they are still great looking. It will dress up your patio and look elegant. Price is great. Try Wayfair and Joss & Main.

    you could try water blasting the entire patio area and you may find the old tiles freshen up and have a better match to the old. Personally if it doesn't work, I wouldn't worry about it, the area should be about comfort rather than the ground. After a while you will not notice it and if you are worried about what other people think, remember they are coming to your house to see you.... not to comment on your unmatched pavers.

    Exchange the position of some new and old ones randomly to mix them up with a great natural stonish look.

    If this bothers you, then I agree the simple thing to do is mix them up. Or, rearrange and put new ones in the center for a design. Leave the edgers as is for contrast.
