    Thanks! Would you know how to match the colour? I can't seem to find a concrete patch that matches... it is too dark.

    It is very difficult to get an exact match, but you can get pigments to add to the parge that alter it's colour. Just remember, as the patch ages it will weather and the environment will alter it's appearance to better match the existing part which as already been weathered.
