drainage along the side of the house.
If you're putting it tight to the foundation I might suggest to line the base of the trench and part of the walls with a plastic liner so that the water is "forced" out the pipe. Without the plastic, the trench might act as a kind of drywell and create an area, right next to your house, for water to congregate.
The ideal spot to put the trench would be 5' away from the house with the soil pitched away from the house to the trench at least 1" down. Don't know if this is possible, but if it is, it would be ideal. That way any water that the pipe can't get can soak into soils that aren't right against your house.
Life's too short...so enjoy it!
