Water Damaged Stucco

Not sure if I'm posting in the right place, but any advice you guys can provide is greatly appreciated.

Bought a house as-is, pulled up the dead flowers and weeds that the owner watered to death for years and then stopped watering once they accepted our offer, and unveiled stucco damage around the bottom perimeter of the house a week after we got the keys.

Home built in: 1958

How should we go about tackling this stucco and paint? Do we have to re-stucco the entire home in order for the paint to look good? Or will fixing the stucco around the bottom
perimeter be enough.

IMHO, pave-over the flowerbeds, Photo/fig. #6; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...sture-problems

You may have wood framing behind the stucco (water reservoir) siding; #5; http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ic...?bu2=undefined

As you repair the stucco, add two layers of WRB for better protection; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...d-wall-systems

One of our forum experts should be along shortly....
