Need to make a swale so water stops sitting by my houses foundation. Any suggestions on best way to go about doing this?

You can either hand water the foundation (using a garden hose,) or use a soaker hose or sprinkler system that waters the area for approximately 15-20 minutes. The most effective way to water your foundation is by having the water placed about 10-15 inches away from the actual foundation (not right on it). How to Drain Water From the Side of a House. Standing water next to your home’s foundation is trouble. It saturates the soil and can seep into basement cracks, leading to water damage and mold ... Water can pool in any number of areas on your property, and while it may be great for ducks, it can cause serious and costly damage. Let’s take a look at the signs your landscaping might have poor drainage — and the top 5 ways you can divert water away from your house. Gutters and downspouts. Gutters are a crucial component of your home's ability to manage water. Keep your gutters clean and in good condition, and install new gutters if need be. To keep water well away from your foundation, use downspouts extensions to discharge the runoff water. Typically, splash blocks that you place underneath the downspouts are too short to move water far enough away from a home's foundation. A better choice is to attach a downspout extender or a flexible corrugated pipe to the downspout terminal that is at least 5 feet long. As it turns out, water can affect the foundation in a number of ways, both directly and indirectly. Under the right conditions and given enough time, water can make expensive foundation repairs necessary, as well as infiltrate the house and cause indoor water damage. Here are three ways water can damage a home’s foundation. A shallow ditch called a Swale dug around the house is one of these effective measures, and it involves digging a ditch surrounding the house from all sides, filling it up with gravel or crushed rock and then finally covering it up with soil and grass. Combined with proper guttering, French drains and foundation swales, most water can be diverted away from the foundation and home. Divert Water Away from Foundations – Preparation. Before starting on your project, watch how the water moves across where you want to install the retaining wall. Figure out what direction you want the water to move. Make sure solution does not create new problems. Decide on the best possible path water can be redirected.

2020.08.05 01:50 Kobalt_Clutterphuck Corruption in a socialist system

So, I'm rather new to socialism, I've been trying to educate myself as much as I can on the topic, but there's something I haven't been able to properly reconcile yet.
So, my country, for instance, has rampant corruption, all the way through, and that's a concern I have and people bring up whenever I talk to them about socialism, how would socialism deal with corruption? How exactly could the system stop bad actors from exploiting it for their own gain?
