French drain?

Any thoughts on an outside french drain system? Landscaper wants to dig down 18 inches on outside and lay pipe. He says this will rid basement of water from floor wall joint. He will also slope lawn away from house. Water only comes in when it rains heavy or alot of snow melt.

Maybe not the best person to handle the job, but it might help.

I would tackle the grade and getting gutter water away first before taking on a drain project!
