    we paved this driveway apron today by hand. we only had shovels, borrowed a rake, and had a single drum roller....I think it came out ok though.....we're not professionals and don't claim to be

    no matter how it is done no paving job is any better than the base under it. we paved my parking lot which is 75 ft square with cold pack 25 years ago and in the last 3 years a few cracks have begun to show. had a pro do the 200 ft driveway 12 years ago and it is already cracking. we did the parking lot with a pick-up truck, rakes, shovel and small hand roller
