Garden makeover 

Hi
Watch the show with admiration we have a massive paved ( red pavers) 72sq meters in total area at the front of our home,(laid by a qualified paver person) looks great but needs something to brighten it up, have tried many plants ( in pots) by no luck, our home faces north and has full sun best parts of the day,any suggestions ?
Keep up the great work, you're a Gem.
