Here's a little experiment, take food coloring (anything u want) mix up some concrete, pour in that coloring, and bam, you got yourself long lasting colored walkway, patio or what have you. (Neighbor did it in his garden, green paths to make it blend in).
Exactly. It would be hard to do with pavement, but if the roads are concrete, there are all kinds of coloring agents that can be mixed in before making the pour. Food coloring could work, sure, but there already is an established market for concrete and clay coloring. I would just get some of that stuff.
