drainage ditch around foundation of house
 
my friends have a two story house and they have 8 foot concrete walls. There walls in the basement have been painted with waterproof paint but there are some spots that seem to be collecting water still. Want to dig around the concrete and put a drainage ditch around it but don't know how deep we have to go. If you could let me know that would be great. Thank you judymartin40@gmail.com
