Smile Help with installing window wells

Hello- there are two windows in our basement that we'd like to replace with window wells. The concern of course is drainage. The only info I've been able to find says that there should be at least 12 inches of gravel at the bottom and around the outside of the well. Any other suggestions or things I should be worried about? Thanks!

Be sure the ground around the window well slopes AWAY from it! You don't want extra run-off from your roof or lawn going down there too.
