Hello,

I have recently purchased a home and the home inspector suggested I create window wells for eahc window in the basement. The reason is to get the ground away from the window sil. When I look for how to's, I find large window wells, that you could climb out of. I don't think I need to go that deep. But my question is, how deep should I go? And what do I need? Galvanized steel, crushed stone and felt for the bottom I think.

I just don't think I need to make it that deep if the goal is to get the ground away from the window, but I don't want to have issues with water, etc.

Any thoughts? Let me know if I am not clear.

Thanks
