new deck stained concrete?
 
I put up a new deck last weekend, made from PT and cedar, currently no stain or sealer is on it, yet. And it has almost rained every day since I finished it. This morning everything has dried out, including all the sidewalks and such. But the sidewalk that leads down and away from the deck is dry but it has a dark brown tint to it. Is this due to the PT or cedar wood. I was thinking maybe the rain has washed off some of the preservative off the PT wood and it stained the concrete? If this is the case, is this common and how long does it take for it to stop?

Thanks in advance.

Post photos of the deck and the concrete stain.
I've never had that issue with a deck. Have you used any fertilizer or other lawn application lately?
