Garden wall repair

My front garden wall's piers are topped off with brick on edge and due to a combination of moss growth and snow/ice getting in over the years the mortar is failing on some of them. I'm tempted to do the repair myself and was wondering what's the best mortar mix to use in this instance, particularly to prevent it happening again. Should I consier using a sharp sand in the mix. Also, I'm not sure whether a lime or cement based mortar was used as it looks very light, although I suppose this could be the sand that was used. Here's a pic of one of the worst piers.
