Default Interlock between houses on different grading

We hired a contractor to replace all the grass around the house with interlock. Our neighbour decided to hire the same contractor and to make it more uniform will put the same interlock, so there won't be a separation between the two houses.

The problem is that his house sits 6 inches above ours. So when they put the gravel, I noticed that there was a steep slope toward our house since it sits lower. I told him that when it was grass, there was a valley in the middle to allow water to flow away from the house, but he said you cannot do that with interlock.

Is there anything you can do to avoid too much water going onto our side?
We had a leak in the basement a couple years ago, but it seems to have been fixed.
