The following picture from www.gardenista.com highlights a herringbone weave in red brick that also incorporates green elements as well as a fireplace.
2 Basket Weave Patio and Steps
This charming Beverly Hills patio begins at the doorway to the home in the form of brick steps. The steps flow into the brick patio creating an appealing and functional outdoor space. The dark brown basket weave brick pattern creates a solid, permanent feel and contrasts well with the white walls of the home.
3 Brick, Timber, and Vegetation
Combine brick, timber, and plants to create a peaceful, shady summer hangout like the one pictured below from the landscapingnetwork.com. Perfect for those languid summer days and cool fall days when you want to relax with friends and family, this "running bond" pattern keeps things simple.
4 Making Circles
Sometimes going around in circles can be a good thing. Check out this circular brick patio pattern from www.decoist.com.
