Repairing/resurfacing concrete pad

Hi,

Second owner of house where original owner built a 20x30 concrete slab and adjacent 10x4 sideway for hottub. For whatever reason, they sprinkled rice on the wet cement to create traction for their kids. Now we have a slab with holes from the rice that range from 1/4 inch deep and 1/2 ince round - think poc marked. What is a suggested remedy to cover this surface with a smooth result?

A concrete resurfacing product would work. Probably the most readily available for a diy'er is Quikrete Resurfacer available at Lowe's. With any resurfacer of this type, surface prep is everything. Follow instructions to a "T" in every regard, from prep to mixing and application.
FYI, the Quikrete resurfacer is pretty dark, so may not look exactly like regular concrete when cured. Good luck!

Self-leveling?

Thanks Pecos. I was also thinking a self-leveling cement, no sure if there is an exterior application. I'll check out your method on the sidewalk first before tackling the 20x30 slab.
