Why does drainage and grading matter? The water’s just soaking into the ground.

Any water that drains next to your home drains down next to your foundation. As the soil absorbs the water it creates hydrostatic pressure. The hydrostatic pressure pushes water into your basement and can even be the cause of basement foundation cracks. Good drainage grading prevents water from draining next to your foundation and creating problems.
