Which way of grading is better for basement water mitigation

Hi, I got two quotes for grading around the house to mitigate water intrusion into the basement with a couple of dollars of hundred dollars of difference in price. The work is for two areas around the house, one of which is under the deck.

One quote uses dirt then plastic under the deck, the other will have grass seeds over dirt.

The other uses class 5 (I assume gravel?) and then black dirt over it for both areas.

Is one of these any better than the other? Thank you for your input!
