That is why all structures are designed in a way the safeguards against water and runoff. Generally, the ground is sloped so that runoff flows away from the building. This may be achieved through landscaping features and other strategies. Additional measures are often taken to protect the foundation, such as foundation drainage, surface drains, and more. A combination of these measures ensures there is proper drainage and no pools around the base of your home.
