every home should be built on its own little hill where water washes away from the foundation in all directions.

This does not always apply. Where you can you can build it up with new soil and sod, but somethimes you are just moving the water from one pond to another.

Here is where a easy to build french drain system is in the works.

It will work, but you have to keep the collection areas clean of debris.
