Mortar Mix

Could someone tell me what the ratio is in mixing mortar? I just need about 2 gallons worth for small repairs around some brick columns. I have a half bag of mortar mix and 5 gallon bucket of sand. Thanks

Mortar Mix

Mortar mix already has the sand in it. If you have masonry cement, it is 1 part cement to 2-1/2 to 3 parts sand, by volume.

Advice is free, Lessons begin at 75 bucks an hour.
