Hi, we need to do some regrading underneath our deck to prevent water getting into our basement. After one fierce storm that gave us over 3 inches of water outside, some got in. Not a ton but with a finished basement, this is a good DIY to prevent issues in the future.
But my question is how do we exactly do the regrading. Steps, materials, tools? Do we use whatever tool to slope the ground more away from the foundation? Do we need to do the entire area underneath our deck or just enough to get away from the foundation? We also saw in Lowe's bags of rocks for regrading--is this better than top soil or whatever else we could use?
