As an answer to the question of how many wheelbarrows of sand or how much sand is needed for a 50-kilo (kg) bag of cement, it is said that 7 wheelbarrows of sand should be added to a bag of cement. However, I personally experienced it and saw that the mortar was not very good according to this ratio. As the ideal ratio, when you add 1 bag, that is, 50 kg of cement, to 3 wheelbarrows of sand, the mortar becomes so good. When you do it this way, you will see that the concrete you made becomes like a steel and shines.

When you use it for wall plaster or built a wall, add half a bag of lime (12.5 kg) to the mortar. There are those who say that adding lime beneficial and there are those who say it is harmful also, but it is generally added to make the workmanship easier and the mortar soft and sticky.
