how to keep rain water away from basement windows


how to regrade soil when the lowest level is in front of basement
windows (an area of 10' x 5' or about 8% of the total area) is 4" lower than the rest of the yard which has been regraded and pitched away from the house. and no additional soil can be removed because of established trees and shrubs.
