pre-mixed morter


working on the cap for my retaining wall. Ideally, I would like to find a pre-mixed morter in a 5 gallon bucket, or so that would hold the caps in place. call me lazy, there are a number of reasons I dont want to mix my own from a bag. Has anyone found, or recommend a good product?

Re: pre-mixed morter


You won't. Mortar doesn't work like that, unless it is lime mortar, which you won't find.

Ayuh,.... Ok, Yer Lazy,....

It's a concrete/ cement based product,...

As soon as water it added, it starts to set-up,...

Which is Why ya can't find such a product,.....

It would be as hard as a rock, before it even got on a truck to go to a store,....

You're not kidding...
It can be all cleaned up with water and a stiff brush or even with a rag. Although, you'll end up with scratches, in which case you can make it look like new with a rattle can.

You mean your wheelbarrow isn't already messed up? A wheelbarrow is supposed be filled see the day you bring it home. That's what they are made for, they aren't supposed to clean and neat looking anyplace except in a store!
