I would like to set the background color of a Button as a solid color without any gradient effect, but am unable to do so.
The xaml that I have included is giving me an appearance like in diagram 1, even though I am chosing a solid color brush.
I would like it to appear as in diagram 2.
I would appreciate advice on how to achieve this.

my Current xaml

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">

            <Grid.RowDefinitions >
                <RowDefinition Height ="50" />
                <RowDefinition Height="50" />
                <RowDefinition Height="50" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="50" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="80" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="20" />
            <Button Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Content="Hello" Background="Green"></Button>
