Drainage and Grading

  • The soil grading next to the foundation is (y/n)__________ properly sloped away from the house. The soil must slope away from the structure to help prevent the rainwater from building up next to the foundation. In most cases, the soil only needs to slope about 1/2 inch for every foot away from the house to properly drain the water.
  • The bushes, shrubs and/or trees are (y/n)__________ properly pruned away from the side of the house. The bushes, shrubs and trees must be pruned away from the side of the house to allow enough sunlight and air next to the foundation to help prevent rot and wood destroying insect problems.
