Old driveway


I have an old asphalt driveway that I imagine to be original with the house (40ish years). It has some dips at the beginning and some cracks probably no bigger then .5" wide. There are some vegetation growing from the cracks. Can I still refinish such an old driveway? I don't want to drop thousands of dollars on it since I purchased it a year old and I don't have a lot to spend.

How does one get rid of all the vegetation from the cracks and I have some moss growing on it by my back yard. I don't recall being able to find something to get rid of the moss.

I will have some photos up soon.

Pressure washing the weeds and soil in the cracks.
Total vegetation killer in the cracks, Once it's dried out asphalt crack sealer then asphalt sealer over the surface.

My asphalt driveway is about 120' long. It's 34 years old and I have it rescaled every other year. My asphalt sealing guy charges about $160 and does a great job. It looks new when he leaves.
