About a month back a laid a small concrete path. A week on I began to walk on it, albeit with muddy foot wear.

I didn't think too much of it at the time but yesterday on using the pressure washer to clean I was most disappointed to see that the soil has stained it rather badly. I have used patio/concrete cleaner and the stains are slowly lifting. The soil did contain clay and rotted well rotted compost.

Anybody else ever had this issue?

If you didn't tamp the concrete down then there will have been lots of little air pockets for the soil/clay to get into. May be the issue.
