We used 16" X 16" brick pavers to create a patio a few years ago. Last summer we added more pavers to enlarge the patio area. The ones that are a few years old are very faded in comparison to the new ones. Any ideas on how to renew the look of the ones that are older?

They can be stained with concrete staining products however they will not match the new pavers. Even pavers purchased from different batches may not match exactly. I would just let the new ones fade to match.

You should try cleansing solutions or some acidic solution to renew your old paver's.
