being that its gravel, I'd try to fill in the valley with more stone, to hold water I figure its packed down pretty good. also, take a look to each side of the garage to see if maybe you can landscape some to move the water away. the flex pipe with the wrap is cheap enough, can't hurt to try that, put down, cover with some stone.
