Herringbone Brick Pathway


I settled on a herringbone brick pattern for the pathway that leads to the front stairs. At first I thought I would use sand to create a cemented pathway, but I like this so much better!

Right now the brick is white, but I need to decide on a color eventually. I am leaning more towards gray tones than red. Maybe I should create test strips of paper clay brick and experiment with colors.

Hello Sumaiya,
Great job on the steps. I think grey or red would both look good...maybe the red might not contrast as much with the deck? I can't wait to see what you decide.
Big hug,
Giac

Your brickwork is really Well Done! I love the herringbone pattern that you have chosen. Choosing a color can be tough. I think that I would start out with a light grey and build up to the reds until you get the intensity that you are looking for.
