I have an incline where I wish to plant grass. What do I need to keep the soil from sliding down when it rains or is watered?

While it is possible to plant grass on a slope, you'll want to assess the situation - lawn may be difficult to mow on a slope. A ground cover that doesn't require mowing might be a better solution. If you decide to grow grass you can sow the seeds and then cover over them with chopped straw. The straw usually stays put when it's wet and grass seeds will sprout in 7-10 days if kept moist. Best wishes with your project.
