Answer: 
Yes, but it isn't great for that. Go buy the stuff from the tile shop - it packs much better and has no pebbles. It's an extra buck 50 or so per bag, but they give you 80lbs not 60.

Answer: 
Another thing- This mix is good for the floor. Use Sakrete stucco for the curb (it's stickier and holds up vertically).

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OK, but the stuff from the Tile Shop works much better for a shower bed. If you are going to do a shower floor, go to the tile shop and buy their mix. It is about $2 more but they give you 80 lbs. It is much finer,packs much better and has no gravel. I think Sakrete is trying to shave some pennies off their cost by putting a bunch of pebbles in it. Also - this should not be recommended for shower floors because the beginning of the slope and preslope are much less than 1/2 inch, and as the label says, you shouldn't use this for less than 1/2 inch. All that said, it wasn't a total loss. I was able to do my shower floor slope, but the gravel was a real pain and added about 2 hours to the job. I think I might put some thinset over the top to smooth it out before I try to tile. My recommendation - sakrete should make a dedicated shower floor mix. Get rid of the pebbles and charge an extra buck for the bag. March 14, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Why does it have gravel? I fail to understand why this sand mix has so much gravel. I have used other sand mixes and I don't run into this problem. I often like to mix a sand mix with certain fortifiers that allow a sand mix to be troweled to a feather edge. With this one it's next to impossible unless I pick out the gravel by hand which is very time-consuming. I have remember running into this problem before about two years ago, but I had completely forgotten and bought it again. Now I have quite a few bags which I might return and buy something else.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Why are there large pebbles? I agree with Freethinker's review. Trying to fill some pits and cracks in my brownstone steps and I keep having to flick away the pebbles that sit abreast the rest of the filling. So annoying. I'll have to sift this first before its useable. The texture other than the pebbles is great otherwise. December 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good mortar shower pan...follow instructions! I was happy with the product for use in laying a shower pan for tile. Water proof membrane stuck to it well. End result was solid. Just a warning: I have seen more than one DIY website that suggests adding sand to sand topping mix for the right ratio of sand to cement (at least 4 to 1). Since sand topping mixes are typically 3 to 1, you are supposed to add sand to make it a good consistency for a shower pan. My experience is that this does not work with this product. I added sand and the pan turned out crumbly. Follow the instructions for a shower pan on the back (no additional sand required). The consistency should be just moist and crumby, but packs into "snowballs" that hold together. Do this and your pan will turn out right the first time :-) May 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worked well for fireplace hearth overlay This may help someone trying to decide which product is best for their particular use. I had struggled trying to decide on an appropriate product for resurfacing a fireplace hearth, where I had removed the 12'x12' tiles which someone had put down in the past. I wanted to go from about a half inch at the edge of the firebox, to an inch and a quarter depth at the outer lip, which I had formed with some angle aluminum stock I had. I toyed with the idea of using Flo-coat, but had never used the product, and was uneasy about the 20 min. set time. Also, it would take about 4 pails to do the job, about $90. I settled on the Sand-mix, since I was familiar working with this type of portland cement based product. I used charcoal color pigment as per instructions, and in hindsight, probably should have used some strength additive, but didn't. I had plenty of time to steel trowel it, and have misted it daily with water and kept it covered with plastic, which I intend to do for at least a week or more. After 48 hrs. I gently removed my edge form, and rubbed the edge out with an abrasive stone. The color is great, and I'm very pleased, having spent less than $30 . Hope this helps someone trying to figure things. By the way, there were NO stones in the mix, only sand. July 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very good product It is a very good product, and works very well as expected but a little pricy. July 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sacrete cement Would definitely recommend this for making stepping stones. Creates a very smooth stone and a nice natural color. March 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by not all sand... even though it's called "Sand Mix", there is still lots of pea size gravel in it. So trying to spread it out to a feather edge is very hard. The bag does say the you should apply it at a min of 1/2 inch. February 12, 2015
