Seal Gap Between Wall and Floor from Rain for Newbie

Not very knowledgeable in the handy department but I can follow instructions well and can execute well. That being said is there an easy way to seal about a four inch by fifteen foot long gap between the garage wall and floor? Garage is completely disconnected but near other parking spots so preferably sealed from the inside.

Thanks for any ideas

4" wide? That's kind of big. How deep is it? And is it currently filed with dirt, or what?

That's a pretty unusual issue. Some photos of the area would be very helpful.

Sorry for the delay

It's that the entire wall doesn't meet the floor. I will take pictures in the morning. It's dark and pouring rain right now. It's all over asphalt. Like they just slapped these garages up on the street but didn't care to make them weather proof at all. When it rains the water just pools in the gutter at the back then starts flooding the garage. Smells like mildew. Pretty irritating. Like I said I'll get pics in the morning. Sorry. Thanks for the responses.

Since it looks like asphalt I would probably get some cold patch asphalt... Clean the area well and then just make a pile of it like a giant speed bump, to divert the water elsewhere.

Get a wider trim board like a LP smartside 1x10 trim, set it on the driveway and nail it onto the side of the wall. Paint it wall color. Caulk the bottom edge to the driveway with blackjack or similar. Azek pvc trim would be better because it wouldn't rot.
