Being on a lake, no one uses an asphalt driveway, not even sure its allowed here. I can say i have zero issues with the driveway heaving from the winter season. I only wish they used another inch or so of crushed stone....frigging weeds

It shouldn't heave unless water gets trapped under it and freezes. Sounds like a drainage problem to me
