How to Lay Bricks like a Pro

Adding PRO Mix MORTAR to Sand and Cement creates a mortar
that's very workable and consistent. You can even add colour if
you want to. Building a brick wall or fence is so much easier
with PRO-Mix. Just follow the simple steps and that wall will be
up in no time!

Tools for Laying Brick & Blocks like a Pro





Wheelbarrow
Hoe or mattock
Trowel
Joint tool

Method
STEP 1
Pour one bag of Sand and Cement into a wheelbarrow and add one pack of PROMix MORTAR additive. Make a hollow and add 3 litres of water per bag and mix
well. If required, add additional water (up to 1 litre per bag) to create a workable
mix. Remember – too much water ruins good mortar.
STEP 2
Apply the mix with a trowel. Allow the mortar to stiffen to touch dry before
attempting to rake or finish the mortar joints.
REMEMBER
Only mix as much mortar as you can use within one hour. EXCESSIVE WATER
weakens the mortar; only use enough to make the mix workable.
RE-TEMPERING the mix with additional water will weaken the mortar. Do not
allow the mixed mortar to stand for an extended period of time.
OXIDE ADDITION: If you’d like to colour your mortar follow the instructions on
the back of packs of Cement Australia oxide products.

Tips to Lay Bricks & Blocks like a Pro
 Only mix as much as you can use in 1 hour
 It’s easier to mix mortar with a hoe or mattock than a shovel
 If the mortar starts to stiffen, don’t add more water. That only weakens the
mortar
 It’s better to make smaller batches until you get used working with mortar
 Wait for the mortar to stiffen to touch dry, before raking or finishing the
mortar joints.
