Patching holes in asphalt driveway


Has anybody used motar to patch holes in an asphalt driveway? I had planned on using a trowel to apply the motar, then adding gravel on the top surface to match the existing asphalt. When all is dry coating the driveway with a quality asphalt sealer. Comments please.

expands and contracts at different rates... the concrete will crack and fall out in no time. asphalt is more flexible. And the concrete requires a better base material for it to last.

Compacted Cold Patch will work slightly better, but Hot asphalt is Best...

I forgot to mention that I live in South Florida. We do not get frosts here and the temperature very rarely goes below 50 degrees.

Still apples and oranges.. and you have oranges in FL.... Use asphalt patch.. easier and cheaper and will work longer and look better.
