How much mortar


Postby the2ems » Tue Jun 29, 2010 6:54 pm

I am laying some Bradstone edging around a paved area, and have no idea how much sand and cement I will need. The edging blocks measure 510mm long x 160mm wide, and there will be 32 in all, single height. I believe the mix should be 5 sand to 1 cement, but would appreciate it if anyone could tell me how to calculate how much I will actually need. Thanks
