13 answers from mybuilder stonemasons.Best answer.I would use a 45 soft yellow building sand to 1 part cement.If you are not putting in a footing go for a lime based mortar ,it will take longer to set but will allow movement ,i would use a 4 sand as sharpe as you like for texture 1 lime if you like add 12 of cement to aid setting.
