The Q&A Archives: Soil Erosion on Slope

Question: I have planted privet hedges for privacy along my back property line and my lot is sloped.The water runs down the hill creating a natural trench alongside and underneath my privets. The hedges are surviving but the bed looks unsightly. Any ideas as to how to deal with my erosion problem?

Answer: Unfortunately, it sounds like you may have a severe runoff/erosion problem. Problems like this tend to worsen over time, so I would suggest you bring in professional such as a landscape architect or engineer for an on-site consultation to help determine the best solution to the problem.
