You might check with landscape contractors in your area or with your local soil conservation office for suggestions; your local county extension might also have some helpful advice. Do keep in mind that a landscape architect or other professional, with training and experience in surface drainage and grading, might be able to help you analyze the root cause of the problem and correct it, so that the new soil doesn't wash away as well. They should also be familiar with sources for topsoil and other amendments sold by the cubic yard.
