Chevron Garden

Chevron Garden

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines chevron as a shape, pattern or object in the form of a V or an upside-down V.  It can also be shown proudly on the sleeve of a military or police uniform to show rank. This simple pattern often pops up in the garden as the traditional brick herringbone pattern, but also in contemporary ways on a myriad of structures such as planters, arbors, gates and doorways. How have you seen the chevron pattern used in the garden?
