And my third would be to use plantings along with med-small boulders to keep the hill in place.

Yea that crossed my mind but I think he wants a cheaper way to go about it. All he wants to do is keep the mud off the roadway.

Yea I was thinking it needed better dirt. How much topsoil do you think you would put down first before seeding. Yea I am not sure where the water is coming from there is a parking lot up above but it is all curbed off. I do not think it is washing out too much. It just getting enough mud on the road that cars are tracking it throughout the parking lot.

Thanks for the advice so far. Keep them coming.
