Hi all, i might be buying a new house contruction. the builder said the grading in that area is done from back to front. meaning, the land will slope slightly from the back of my lot to the street. there won't be any catch basins in any of the backyards. i'm concerned about this. i've read before that grading should be so that water is directed away from the house. but with this kind of grading, water will be going towards the back of my house. i would imagine that the land at the back of my house will be very soggy and the foundation back there will be wet most of the time. am i concerned for nothing? is this a common way of grading? is there a website that describes each type of grading in detail? i've tried looking but couldn't find any.
