gravel drainage


Will gravel around the foundation of my home help with drainage? How should it be done?
Where one has low windows just above the ground.. even though there is proper drainage in place off the roof.

gravel drainage


you need drain pipe which gets covered by gravel so the holes do not get clogged. Gravel by itself will do nothing to help with drainage.
