Concrete around back of house

Currently I have around the back and side of the house a 3-4 foot wide strip of dirt/gravel. I believe I have an old french drain that is not functional too well.

My question is if I want to concrete this perimeter around the back and back sides do I still need to have the drainage system around the house even if I slope it away from the house?

Also, should I call a landscaper, general contractor, or cement contractor to do this?

Do you know if you actually have a "French drain"?

How deep is it and where does it go?

You may be able to leave it in place to your benefit or you may have to remove it depending on what it does/can do.
