Where to place rocks near house foundation.

We have a strip of property on our neighbors driveway side that we want to put down river rock so we don't have to mow that area any more. My question is, should there be a space between the foundation and where we start putting the rocks? I've heard that gravel and rocks can direct water to the foundation, and I don't want that to happen.
