brick walkway pattern advice

Posted by hgolightly (My Page) on

We have a 1910 Greek Revivial home where we will be installing clay brick walkways. Although I like the look of a basketweave pattern, I'm wondering if that was traditional and true to the style of house and the time period? Running Bond is the only one I see with old homes. Any advice is appreciated.

Herringbone is used a lot for brick walkways. It is the time-honored pattern for whatever reason.

Here are some pictures of a variety of patterns.

I agree with the herringbone. We have a 1920's tudor style home, that's the pattern we used when we installed our new patio.

You can install it at a 45 degree angle (more work, more cuts), or at a 90 degree angle.
