Walkway Grading


Hello,
I started to the grading on the side of my house, where a concrete slab walkway is.

Did some reading and found the grading around a house should be roughly 1"/1'.
After doing the first two, it seems a bit much, but maybe Im wrong. Is 1"/1' the standard for walkways, or was this only for soil?

This is what Im dealing with:


Thank you,
Luke

We do 1/4" per foot, or 1" for every 4 feet. That's enough for septic lines, so it's good enough to make water run down hill.

I did 1/8" per foot because that's min slope for larger than 3"
