The secret to a long-lasting driveway is a routine resealing regimen. Choose a rain-free weekend to work, then spray down and scrub the drive clean. Allow to dry for a full 24 hours. When it's dry, pick up a sealer from your local hardware store and work it onto the asphalt in 4' x 4' patches using a squeegee or the back of a push broom. Keep tires —and feet—off the surface for another 24 hours to allow it to set properly.
