Hi i would recommend hacking of the pebble dash and painting the concrete with rendaid. Then 4-1-1 mix for the scratch coat and a 5-1-1 for the top coat. With a waterproofer in both coats.

I would recommend hacking the pebbledash off if the pebbledash is really solid it would be advisable to go over it with rendaid and render over that with weber monocouche render.
