And here, code requires a 1:10 slope away from the foundation to prevent water from flooding the basements.

All houses, or most, have downspouts here too, but they usually run to the
foundation. With the drought spells, there are a lot of foundation
problems.....so folks like to have the water around the foundation to keep it from
cracking. Practically every house has plants around the house, since the
"foundation" needs to be watered during droughts, so it is good soil, and suitable
for planting.
