Landscaping and grading: Obviously keeping water out of your basement or crawl space is very important. Ideally every home would be built on a hill that slopes away in every direction, but that’s rarely the case. So, as a rule of thumb, try to maintain a minimum downward slope of 6 inches within the first 10 feet away from the home in all directions. This will direct water away from the foundation and help keep the basement dry. It will also look great on the inspection report.
