Can the area in front of the garage be repaired with asphalt?

Yes, this area, which is called the "apron," can be successfully repaired with asphalt as long as two conditions are met.

Answer

First, if the garage footings are damaged or are not core filled they need to be repaired. If not, the base tends to fill the voids left and no longer can support the asphalt above. Second, a tightly compacted base needs to be installed before the asphalt is laid.
