Our front yard has a 15' slope that has two was outs. The dirt in Vicksburg MS is like quicksand. What can I do?

Sounds as though your sloping yard is the perfect candidate for a curtain drain to help redirect excess water. I'd plant some groundcover to help slow erosion and help prevent those washouts. Vinca minor, ajuga, and hypericum (St. John's Wort) are all excellent choices for your gardening region. Best wishes with your landscape!
