Gap where the walkway meets the foundation

Hi folks,

There is a crack where the walkway meets the foundation, close to an inch in some areas. I can see there have been caulking attempts, most recently some kind of resurface. The crack may be slowly widening over time. What do you think my best bet would be to patch it up for now?

Thanks.

You have no way of knowing how the slab was poured. For example, was mesh used? The slab maybe shifting causing the split. You might want to remove that caulking, install a backing rod & re-caulk. There is a video on youtube. I would start with that before mixing mortar.
