Re: Garage wall rotting, ground leakage
Are you considering the sump pit/pump located inside the garage?
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?
If so that won't really solve the problem.
You need to take care of the drainage outside preventing the water from getting inside the garage in the first place.
Sounds as though attention needs to be given to filling in the low spots with grading away from the garage and/or the possibility of an exterior drain to divert the water elsewhere
