Yea Bermuda is getting a little late so it wouldnt work. Seems Ryegrass will be about the best solution. Yea the hill is not steep. I can put my rider on it so I dont know why people keep saying retaining wall.

Sod and lots of water. Easy.
As someone else said I think sod would cost way too much.

Yea ill check into doing a soil test. It just hard around here to get grass to grow in red clay. What do you mean by roll the seed into the soil?

What is curlex plastic erosion control blanket? Is it pricey?
