Instead of the rocks, you need some fibrous rooted groundcover plants to help slow erosion. Things like kinnikinnik or ajuga or even ornamental grasses will help stablize the slope. For other ideas, contact University of Maryland Cooperative Extension, Baltimore City Office, 6615 Reisterstown Rd, Suite 201, Baltimore, Maryland 21215, (410)856-1850. Helpful folks there can offer ideas for erosion control.
