I got a customer that is bi- weekly. He is young and just moved into a house to start a family. The yard needs a lot of work! There are trash piles Ruts from a truck and erosion issues and much more. I can get all of these except the erosion. I have no idea how to combat this. The shed is on a hill and then about 10 feet is the fence. The dirt by the fence is pretty much gone. Any Ideas?

Is it shady or full sun in that area

mm Not to sure There is a shed I'm not sure how much sun it blocks out. There is also another fence perpendicular to the erosion spot but its only about 5 feet long. There is some green there so i am guessing it gets a little bit of light. It would be mostly full sun i think if it wasn't for the fence.

Do you have any more images? This really depends on how steep the grade is and how big the area is, you may have to put in some tyoe of interceptor drain
