Concrete Vs Mortar The Difference Which Is Best

Mortar uses slightly more water than concrete. You should be able to hold concrete in your hand and form it into a ball when it’s properly mixed. Mortar, on the other hand, is too wet to hold a form. Most mortar mixes have a compressive strength of around 1500 psi. Although some go as high as 3500 psi.
