Dry-Laid Brick Herringbone

This spacious patio is built to last with a zigzagging herringbone pattern that helps lock bricks in place. Used for centuries on both patios and paths, herringbone is also a traditional choice for more formal landscapes and house styles. You can make the pattern with any rectangular brick or paver, but it's particularly eye-catching with these long ones that are laid with their narrow edges facing up.
