Block Paving Patterns Available

There are many makes, sizes, colours and patterns available for block paving. To make it easier for our clients, here are the popular block paving patterns available.

We can explain how each pattern we will work with a particular type of block paving.

The final block paving pattern chosen can make a distinctive difference of how a block paved drive, a block paved patio or pathway looks.

Block paving patterns is more than just laying brindle stones in traditional straight lines. Patterns from herringbone to random stretcher can suddenly transform an area of block paving from dull to eye catching.

Having the eye for this detail and of course the skills to lay the blocks to create these patterns, is something JD Landscapes Coventry have been doing for years.

Stretcher bond & stack patterns

The stretcher bond pattern is created by laying a row of bricks, with the longest side sitting length ways. Then this is followed by a second row of bricks laid almost identically, but offset by the measurement of half a brick.

The stretcher bond can either be laid as a single size or as a 'random stretcher bond' using different sizes.

Herringbone block paving pattern

The attractive interlocking design of herringbone block paving pattern guarantees your blocked paved patio, pathway or driveway will always attract compliments. The inter connecting chevron like pattern will always look good and for longevity it is good as well because the chevron pattern helps interlock each paving block together making it harder for the blocks to move.

There are 2 types of herringbone block paving styles, one is the 90 degree angle and the other is the 45 degree angle.

The 90 degree angle herringbone pattern is usually the easiest to build from a right-angle corner, preferably against an edging course.

The 45 degree herringbone pattern establishes its base line at 45 degrees. Laying down this design requires more patience and a lot of precise measuring than the 90 degree pattern, but the results give a more stunning finished design in our opinion.

Other block paving patterns

Another block paving pattern that is popular is the basketweave block paving. It is a simple criss-cross like a woven basket type pattern. The basketweave pattern is created by alternating pairs of vertical and horizontal blocks. Although simple, it is not advised to be used in a big area like a driveway because there is a chance that the block paving using this pattern may move under weight, so it is normally used for patios and pathways only.
