I am converting some driveway into flower beds and a walkway and I
remove some of the asphalt. Is a sledgehammer the way to go. Can I
(safely) score a line in the asphalt with a circular saw and concrete/
Scoring asphalt will probably not work. It would be better to cut
completely through. How thick is your asphalt? You can certainly
try a fiber or dry diamond blade in your circle saw. If your saw
is not up to the task, or you are planning quite a bit of cutting,
a walk behind pavement saw or hand held gasoline saw would be more
appropriate. They can be rented.

If it's really asphalt, I'd use an old axe and a sledge. With
one person setting the axe, and another whacking it with the
sledge, it should go pretty quickly. A circular saw would
probably WORK, but it might be unusable for anything else
afterwards, and you'd at least have an ugly cleaning job
to do, afterwards.
