English Bond brickwork is were the bricks are laid in alternate layers of headers and stretchers. this bond is mainly used today as a decorative bond, often used in garden landscaping for screen walls. The traditional way of laying the courses is often changed to have 1 course of headers, then 3-5-7 courses in between the stretch course, this is referred to as Garden wall Bond. Like Flemish Bond, this can be a very difficult bond to get right and will take a lot of practice.
