Reduce the risk of foundation problems by managing soil moisture.

1. Water the perimeter of a concrete slab foundations to maintain consistent moisture. Do not over water. 

2. Avoid over watering pier and beam foundations or a damp crawl space may occur.

3. Avoid conditions that allows water to stand for long periods.

4. When in doubt have a landscape company or engineer survey the topography to assure proper drainage exist. Look for poor drainage after heavy or prolonged rains and correct if needed.

The soil is too dry and is pulling away from the foundation edge. 

Large trees growing close to the foundation pose some risk to the foundation however few people are willing to cut down a tree.
