Pull the weeds away. To avoid getting cuts and injuries from pulling weeds, wear rubber gloves. Hold the weeds on their foundation and pull out carefully to get their roots. Use gripping tools such as pliers for tough weeds to pull out at least the part of the tough weeds that attract attention.

If the roots of the weeds are difficult to remove, carefully chip out around the root when it is already about 1⁄2 to 1 inch wide and 1/3 inch deep, use a filler to smooth out the surface. Also to smooth pointed surfaces, use a chipper. There should be loose stones picked up. To eliminate pebbles, use a broom.

Get rid of spots and soil. Use of cleaner is advised for tough stains like oil or gas stains. The detergent or cleaner residue can be washed away using water at high pressure. Before moving to the next step, make sure that the driveway is completely dry.

For cracks, use fillers. Use asphalt-emulsion fillers for small cracks and smoothen the surface. Use cold patches for cracks that are at least 1 inch wide. To fill in most of the opening first, pebbles or stones can be used. Cement can be an option, but it can take quite some time to dry completely. Cover and drive over the patch with plywood. Until the patch is completely dry, you can leave the plywood there.
