NO DIVING ALLOWED - This standing water at the edge of the home's foundation is a big no-no. It can seep into the foundation walls, lead to wood decay, and is a breeding ground for insects. This particular area should be filled in with soil (plant a shrub!), landscaping rocks, or other material to prevent water accumulation.
