I can't see why it wouldn't work, but you may find a more atractive solution is to pick up a roll of landscape fabric ($3 a roll or so), put that down around the base of your bushes and then cover with a wood mulch or stone. I guess I'm partial to 'natural' elements in the garden, like wood and stone, the only concern I can think of with the asphalt is that the chemicals may leach into the ground (don't know) and then you might not want to eat the berries. Something to think about, I suppose.
