    Unhappy Garage wall rotting, ground leakage

    Would our installing a sump pump on the north end of the garage suffice to remove accumulated ground water (mainly spring thaw) on front of garage?
    I can't find anyone to help me fix the ground water problem which produces a lot of water inside of the garage 2-3 days in the spring. Large cracks are appearing in the floor. Walls are bolted down on a slab of cement (no foundation/old garage). My yard is low ground - standing water at times if heavy rains. Other than hiring a house mover to jack it up and thousands of dollars (ten or more) to remove and/or add new cement, I need a cheaper solution.
    What can I do? As you can see by the pictures, the wall is rotting. I added the cement to some of the wall in the pictures.
    If the sump pump idea is a likely solution, how do I install it to help create the drainage?
    I think I would run a hose or pipe along the west side of the garage, out to the street for the run off.
