Rain water can flow towards the foundations of your house if your yard does not have a proper grade or slope. An improper grade can create boggy spots where planting grass and other plants can be problematic. It is important that your yard will have a gradual slope away from the house of approximately 3/4 inch per foot. Usually, creating a grade involves spreading approximately a 4-6 inches layer of top soil over the yard, and then, distribute and smooth it to slope away from the house.
