### I am laying a walkway with paving stones. If I add 2 inch of sand to 375 sq feet of space, how much cubic ft of sand will I require?

Since a cubic foot is 12" x 12" x 12", if you were to make the sand 12" thick you would have 375 cubic feet of sand. However, since you want your sand 2" thick (which is 1/6th of a foot), you simply divide the 375 by 6 to get the value of sand in cubic feet (62.5).

mortar proportions are always expressed as a proportion of cement to lime to sand and always in that order

Cement bags have the mix written on the side for mortar mix or concrete mix or you can get mortar mix cement which already has the lime added

### What is the sand and cement mix ratio for a patio

Hello. The typical volume-ratio for a self-mix concrete in this application would be one part Portland cement to three parts sand. For a stronger pad (capable of higher stress loads) it would be as low as two parts sand, but this is not necessary for a standard patio pour. The gravel should be three parts, more will make it tougher to achieve a smooth finish. Re-cap: Portland cement - 1 part, sand - 2 or 3 parts, gravel - 3 parts. Hope this helped.
