Answer: 
No, this material is used for brick, block and stones on wall applications only. If you stones are a minimum of 2" thick then you can use High Strength Concrete Mix. If they are less than 2" thick then you could try using the Sand Mix Topping & Bedding Mix. Practice with each to see which will give you the most desirable look.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Couldn't get this to stick to anything I was using this to repair a few blocks in the foundation. No matter how I mixed it, I couldn't get it to stick to anything. It was like working with wet sand. I also tried to use it as stucco for the same wall and it would peel right back off. Going back to the other brand from the blue store. June 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not suitable for brick repointing Bought this product because of its description of being suitable for brick repointing but it didn't work as I expected. I wanted to fill in the joints of my 60 year old brick house but the project was a failure. The mass didn't flow well from the grout bag and the mortar didn't stick well to the bricks. Only after mixing half of the mortar with half of Portland cement I was able to use this product. While this product may be good for laying bricks, I would not recommend using it for brick repointing or any touch up applications. I was also surprised how incompetent the HD employees are. When this mortar didn't work for me I contacted HD again and both online customer support and the employees at the store were trying to sell me the mortar that was for thick bed mortar applications even though I described in great detail my project. Always talk to specialists and do your own research before placing the orders as you can't rely on the HD's recommendations. October 28, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Really sandy mix I've done some brick work before. I'm no professional by any means, but I'm told I do some good work. I tried this brand since I had a HD gift card. Normally I go with Quikrete from that L store, but I thought I'd give this stuff a try. For the life of me, I couldn't get a good consistency on this stuff. I think it had too much coarse sand because it was more like grits than pudding. It was stiff and hard to work with and I couldn't get that nice pudding-like consistency. No matter what, it was just too grainy and didn't want to stick to the brick when I was buttering. That said, I got a couple courses of brick layed and everything is well adhered now that it's dry. I think I'll stick with the other guys or my own mix, just due to workability. Whether it was an off batch or not, I wasn't very impressed. August 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I used the Type S to lay blocks and bricks and then applied it as a stucco coating over the entire project. Mix as directed and apply. I am not a masonry person by trade, but this stuff makes my work look like I do it for a living. April 3, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great material to work with I layed over 1000 block using this mortar mix at a remote location. great material to work with and good value. You can't go wrong here. March 17, 2012
