create positive slope when siding is at grade?
actually hardie siding is not a good choice in areas that stay moist,it will soak up alot of water and start to fail quickly
any siding burried in the ground is going to eventually cause problems the only real cure is poured concrete or masonary units
you possibly could excavate to 6-8'' below where the wood siding starts,trench it 3 or 4 ft wide add a small retaining wall and drainage,add a layer of stone as a ground cover
