Will diggigng around my home's foundation helpful to prevent termites?

Is digging six inches around 100 year frame home foundation and laying first Boric acid, then weed cloth, then gravel advisable? Will this prevent termite treatments from being effective? Will it enhance drainage away from foundation!?
Is this advisable around the foundation housing a basement as well?

    I say a bad idea if you dig around your fountainion that will promote water to pool an will eventually cause long term wear

    Be sure and go below any wood area. You do not want any wood to be in contact with the ground. If you fill the area with gravel it should help the water drain.
