This is not our area of expertise. Below are some options. Begin by contacting Soil Conservation in your county http://www.aascd.org/

if you are looking to control any water issues you may have
look at the attached link on storm water management. You may be able to install a rain garden, rain barrels, etc. in the area to slow the erosion on your property.
