Brick and Paver Patterns - Basket Weave
Basket-weave patterns require no cutting if you plan the borders correctly. Start in the middle of an edge and lay three short rows to create a stepped pyramid. Once the rows are laid, work diagonally, filling in the steps until you cover the surface.
SNAP A LINE DOWN THE MIDDLE
Lay out the patio or walk and put the edge restraints in place. Snap a chalk line down the center of the sand bed.
BEGIN LAYOUT AT THE CENTER LINE
Put the first brick in place against the edging, with the long edge on the centerline. Make sure it's square. Lay six bricks on each side of the line in the pattern shown.
LAY THE SECOND ROW
Begin the second row before you finish the first. Starting at the centerline, place the bricks following the pattern, laying only four bricks on each side of the line.
LAY THE THIRD ROW
Install two bricks on each side of the line to create a stepped pyramid pattern. From now on you'll lay bricks in the steps, which will keep the bricks aligned and square.
FOLLOW THE PATTERN
Start at the edge restraints and nestle two bricks in the corner created by the restraints and the bricks already laid. Work your way up the stepped sides of the pyramid on each side. Continue laying in a stepped pattern to lay the entire surface. Cut end pavers as needed to fit against the restraints.
