    Better solution is to start getting the water away from the house. Do you have gutters? Collecting the water and moving it 4/6 ft. away from the house may solve the.problem. Very hard to seal the wall/ slab joint when house is already built.

    The first thing I'd do is punch a few holes in the base of the planter to drain out on the ground. If there was still a problem with standing water I'd consider add ing either a french drain or digging in a dry well. (see images) Good luck, Tom
