Hi, we have new concrete poured in the side yard 3 days ago. Since then, it's showing this disgusting spotty pattern (my kids said the pattern looks like the brain). See Picture 1 below. You can zoom in for a closer look. Is it normal or bad concrete mix?

Also, half of the concrete still looks very wet even though the weather has been hot this whole week. See Picture 2 below.

A month ago, we poured concrete in another part of the house and it wasn't like that at all. It dried evenly and no longer looked wet after only 2 days. We were so pleased with the result which led us to now do the side yard as well. Never expected the result to be so different!

Will the ugly pattern go away? If not, what can we do to fix it?

Please advise. Thanks in advance!
