- Guess who started using perspective grids for backgrounds like a functional human being instead of eyeballing them like an fool... Me... It's me.

Perspective grids will give you the "right" horizontal lines, but you still have to be careful how you space the vertical elements. Those bricks seem to be getting wider the further away they are, and the bricks in panel 2 are wider than the ones in panel 1, and the ones in panel 4 are wider still.

There is a technique for getting that sort of thing right: http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/07/dividing-space-in-perspective-tutorial/
As you can probably see, it can take a lot of time. But, if you do it a few times, you will start to get a sense for how the visual spacing between objects changes with distance, so you'll be able to eyeball it nicely after getting some practice. I recommend learning to do this just to develop that sense for it.
Once you do have a sense for it, you can "cheat" effectively on things like brick patterns by making a flat pattern first and then distorting it into shape, which usually takes care of the spacing for you, though you still need to have a good eye for spacing to make sure you're not over- or under-stretching your pattern.
