Repairing concrete mortar siding with exposed crushed rock

Could anyone offer suggestions as to where I might purchase 3/8" washed crushed rock for repairing damaged areas (and corners) of my old painted concrete mortar siding which has exposed crushed rock stuck throughout siding? Is the mortar mix the same as brick mortar? Any help would be much appreciated. Ray

Yes it can be done by a DIYer. Where to buy is going to depend on how much you want to spend. You will need a complete track system. They can be bought from the big box stores to custom door companies.

If you are worried about the aggregate, start by looking at the nearby aggregate sources since typically, the shipping cost is greater than the cost of the aggregate.

A second source would be the the local packager of the mix if you thinks it was supplied withing the packaged mix that was used.
