Mortar for CMU wall?

1:2:4 cement:sand;aggregate should be OK. What is more important is depth and size of foundation.

Welcome to the forums! I moved you to "Concrete" for more responses.

If any ads are present in my answer above, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed, they are there against my permission.
