Advice needed on patching driveway against house wall

Postby rflook » Sat Apr 18, 2020 8:15 pm


So amid the Corona lockdown I decided to rip out some weeds growing against the side of my house. This was down my driveway and the weeds had grown out of some soil which had settled at the bottom of the house wall. Despite the soil not being deep at all, when I ripped the weeds out, a big chunk of driveway tarmac came away as well. I was thinking of getting some UltraCrete, though this seems like a lot of filler for a relatively small hole. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to how I might fill a hole about 6 inch in length by about 3 inch wide?

Hi rflook,
Your local national DIY store should have a small pot of tarmac repair mix.
