Hiya Mickey

Welcome to The DIY forum...

Forgive me if this sounds silly but you have selected in your profile that your a trade bricky, so how come a trade bricky is asking a question like this? You would surely know how much sand you need to lay 100 bricks?

A pro bricky could lay up to 1000 on a good day, so 100 would be "Hardly worth wetting your trowel for" surely?

your absolutly correct i didnt know what to put down,

I am an apprentice i have been doing it now 6months but never done anything on my own, ordering materials etc.. and its a wall for my Girlfriends Parents...

dont really want to get too much or too litle makes me look a right fool... infront of the future in-laws haha
