House / soil movement

Here are the resources worth reading on the topic:
(mostly found through this search on google).

Most recommendations seem to center on around:
  • Sloping soil away from foundation
  • Watering regularly to prevent huge cracks from appearing (which allows for non-standard water flow)
  • Monitor soil moisture (possibly with instruments at multiple locations around foundation?) - aka "soil resistivity" OR "soil moisture measurement"
  • Consider setting up barriers to roots and/or water movement
  • And of course, gutters
