Last Updated: 17th April, 2020
- Use a circular saw with an abrasive masonry blade to cut around the hole to provide a clean edge.

Simply so, can I Asphalt my own driveway?
Do it Yourself Asphalt Driveway. Making your own asphalt driveway is hard work, and not a job for one person. If you have friends who will help you, it is possible to save a lot of money by doing your own driveway, even after the cost of rental equipment is factored in.
Similarly, how do you fill potholes in a dirt driveway? Filling a Pothole in a Dirt or Gravel Driveway For a dirt driveway, fill the hole with dirt up to three to four inches above the desired surface level. Water the soil and compact the area using the steel tamper or 4x4. If necessary, repeat the process until the dirt is compacted to the desired level.
Secondly, is it OK to pave over an existing driveway?
An overlay or resurface can be used on an asphalt driveway, parking lot, or road way. An existing asphalt surface is the best base for new asphalt. Damaged or troubled areas are repaired before the installation of asphalt.
How do you harden cold patch asphalt?
Plug the hair dryer into the extension cord. Operate the hair dryer in a sweeping motion. Blow hot air over the patch until you cannot easily press into the material. Keep blowing as long as it takes to harden the patch, since it is mostly the air flow that cures it faster.
