I would plant ground covers to reduce soil erosion. Once your ground cover plants are established you can add some shrubs to bring color and texture to your yard. Here's a website with photos and descriptions of ground cover plants for your region:

Hope it gives you some ideas. Just click on the name of the plant and you will get information on plant size, flower color, etc. Happy browsing!
