Best Answer

A 12" x 12" brick covers an area of one square foot. Assuming your patio is 396 square feet, then you would need 396 bricks. However, you will almost certainly have to cut some bricks to fit them into whatever shape your approximately 20' x 20' patio will be, so you should figure on needing a few more. The rule of thumb is to order what you need plus 10% extra, but make sure you can return the unused bricks. Area covered by 12x12 inch brick is 144 square inches. That is 1 square foot.

Total area of the patio is 396 square foot.

Number of bricks required = 396/1 = 396 bricks. Source: That gives you the extra ten percent you'll need to compensate for cutting, breakage, etc.

Is that 144 square feet, as in 12' x 12'?If that is the case, you would need a minimum of 81 bricks. If the patio is indeed square, or 12' by 12', each side is 144", or 9 16" bricks. 9 x 9 = 81 bricks.If the patio is not square, you may need extra bricks on one or both sides if the width is not evenly divisible by 16 inches.

How many 16 inch bricks needed for a 256 square foot patio?

The question, as stated cannot be answered. You need to know two dimensions of the bricks to find the area of each brick, convert that area into square feet (if necessary) and then divide 256 by the area of each brick. Bricks are not usually square so it would not be appropriate for me to assume that the bricks are 16" by 16".
