Apron corners loose

Both corners of my driveway have become bouncy as some of the packing has washed away due to unfinished landscape. The rest of the apron/driveway seems solid and shows no signs of voids.

The concrete guys who did the pour checked it out and said the rebar is still holding find and have offered to come shove some additional concrete from a left over job as a filler if I dig out around the edges. Any suggestions if this will work or any other options?

I don't particularly want to go the mud jacking route since it is only a 2 year old slab and don't want patch holes all over if I can avoid it.

if you trusted him enough to place the driveway, let him fix it,,, why even consider ' mud jacking ' ? ? ? using incorrect method / materials will never resolve an issue - only exacerbate it + make it more expensive when 1 finally fixes it correctly !


if you hear it from a guy in the apron store, be VERY suspicious the mtl/method will work,,, when it time to build something together, they won't answer phones NOR help
