How much concrete mix?

If you're talking about bags of mortar, where you add the sand and water, then you'll need 10-12 bags (each bag, mixed with 3 parts of sand, will do approx. 35-40 8x8x16 block). If you're buying the sand/mortar premixed, then you'll need 40-45 bags (each bag does 8-10 block).
