Flemish Bond Brick Walls
Garden walls built using Flemish bond are one bricks wide. As with any wall built of brick, no two adjacent vertical joints should be in line.
With a straight wall this is not a problem, just offset each course so that the header bricks are centred on the stretcher bricks on the course below.
When turning a corner at the end of a straight run, a Queen Closer (coloured blue) is required on each course.
Joining into a wall part way along the wall, is the same as for the end turn except that a Queen Closer is only needed on every other course.
Use Flemish bond for a half brick width wall can give a decorative finish but does require the use of quite a few half bats (coloured green) and three quarter bats (coloured red).
