Is it common for water to get under the driveway?
I have an 2.5 year old asphalt driveway and water seems to make its way under the areas where the ground alongside the driveway is higher (several inches more elevated) than the driveway itself. It especially happens when we have a bad (snowy) winter like this and extra snow is piled up along the side of the driveway. Does water drain straight down through the soil or is it normal for it the move horizontally as well and get into the soil below my driveway? My driveway has rised up considerably this winter. I hope it will go down. Is there anything I can do about this?
