Backyard Beauty: Herringbone Pattern Brick

My fiance and I are planning an overhaul of our city backyard, and we immediately agreed we want the new patio to have a herringbone pattern.

While chevron is trendy, herringbone brick walkways and patios are timeless. The classic pattern lends a little order without being boring. It's as appropriate in an English country home (Image 1) as it is in a Brooklyn backyard (Image 2) or California patio (Image 4).
