If you don't have a lot of time for upkeep I'd be tempted to have an alpine-style garden, removing patches of bricks and planting in spaces, and scattering seeds of low-growing plants like creeping thymus between the bricks - before long most of the bricks will be covered - you could just retain some meandering pathways around/through it.
Absolutely don't spread gravel on top of a hard surface like brick - it will move under your feet and cause falls. My brother broke his ankle because gravel moved under his foot as he walked over it.
