mud splashing on siding
The eaves on our roof don't hang over very far, so we have a problem with mud splashing up onto our siding. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
It is especially bad with our shed with lp panel siding. The old siding had to be replaced because all around it, the bottom 6" had rotted and I don't want that to happen again. All house siding is anywhere from 6" to 18" from the ground. The shed siding is about 3" to 6" from the ground. Building up the earth along the foundation to slope it away from the siding might be difficult on the shed.
I'm assuming that sloping the ground away from the house will help, but before I put in all the labor, I thought I'd ask for any advice on how to do it...
angle of slope, how far away from the house should the slope run, ground cover, best type of ground cover, some sort of flashing?
If anyone had dealt with this, I'd appreciate the advice.
