Gap between lawn and basement wall?

In the summer months when it's very dry, I notice a gap about 3/4" to 1" between my lawn and my foundation wall. I know I have a lot of clay so it tends to shrink. I want to improve the soil so water drains and it doesn't freeze and expand against my basement wall. Any thoughts or suggestions? Has anyone else seen this? Thanks, Dave.
