Asphalt driveway crack filling suggestions


My 91 year old mother wants to fill in cracks in her drive (bill is for sizing). The largest crack is about 1/2" wide and perhaps as deep:

It runs across the width (about 10') and is likely a tree root from a huge maple 20' away.

I've used the black stuff in the gallon jug from Lowes/HD and not impressed. I also used some stuff you melt with a torch and that was fairly tedious and a bit pricey.

Any suggestions as to what to try?

Thanks!

Ayuh,..... Go with the stuff in a jug, with sand in the ingredients,...

A full driveway resurface with an inch of blacktop is the Right way to fix it,....
