Default Grass coming up through asphalt driveway

There are a couple places along the edge of my driveway where grass is coming up. What is the best way to repair this?

My guess is 1. Kill grass with spots of roundup or vinegar, 2. Fill in the voids/spots where they emerged with a driveway crack/joint filler.

Is there any way to prevent this from happening in the future?

Same thing here, although we don't particularly care. It's only near the edge where the asphalt is light and we'll be getting rid of that sooner for interlock.

Still be nice to know if there is a quick/cheap fix.
