I was mistaken, I went back a few times, and didn't see the perf holes until this morning........

From what I gather, the pipe is being used to drain water from the back yard to the front yard, or vice-versa, and it just happens to be next to the foundation. I wouldn't run the perf. next to the foundation, only at the end where it's actually collecting the water. I'd run solid bedded in less-impervious soils near the foundation IF it was me.............

But, I may not understand what the OP is trying to do here either.........

In most cases ( like this one ) it would help if the homeowner would back up and take a distance shot of the whole side of the building before taking close ups.

You can't take too many pictures when your trying to get help solving a problem with your home.

Those holes are really there itsreallyconcrete.........I wasn't seeing things.
right at the top of the pipe.
