    If the above doesn't work. Have a local mobile media blaster clean it all off to the bare concrete and start fresh. These can be rented in many places. Paint or dye the surface with only quality products ~ they are extremely inexpensive. PS; I have used graffiti remover with limited success. A bad paint job is hard to fix.

    Acetone. But be careful around plants.
