Hole in driveway due to treeThe previous owner had a tree near the garage and paved around the existing tree instead of removing it.
This caused two issues, roots heaved the asphalt and left a 2 by 3 foot opening in the asphalt on removal of the tree.
Used 6 bags to fill the hole in layers.
Not having a tamp tool, after spreading it with a shovel, laid scrap plywood on it and drive the car on the plywood.
A technique that works to move the material evenly is that if it is tacked in a pile, the edge of the shovel drawn through it lifts it enough to spread.
Compacted well and smoothly.
Left the car parked on it overnight.
