Well, if you raise the ground, your foundation will still have to go down to where it would have been (under frost line) so really what you are doing is changing the grade of the land, so that the house is not the lowest point.

You can run "French drains" around the house, or add a sump or dry well to the property.

I'm not a pro, but I know what you are going through!
