Block paving also known as brick paving is a commonly used decorative method of creating a pavement or hardstanding.
The main benefit of bricks over other materials is that individual bricks can later be lifted up and replaced.
A concrete brick has to be allowed to set.
There are many different laying patterns that can be achieved using block paving.
The most common of these is the herringbone pattern
A herringbone pattern can be created by setting the blocks at either 45 degrees or 90 degrees to the perpendicular.
Other popular types of pattern include stretcher bond and basketweave; with the latter being better suited to paved areas that will only receive light foot traffic, due to its weaker bond.
