Code, at least in CA, requires 6 inch drop over the first 10 feet from the building (5% slope). If hardscape, or any other impervious surface, falls within that 10 foot zone the minimum slope is 2%. In general the lot should be graded to slope away from the foundation/building, and I believe the general rule of thumb is a 2-3% slope outside the 10 foot zone.
