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?

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.
