Or should I rent a skid and dig the hill back off the curb some more to keep the extra dirt on the curb from washing into road and than plant a annual rye grass? I guess this will probably be my best bet for right now? But than I guess I need to worry about the soil test?
It's pretty marginal for Bermudagrass at this point in time. I agree with annual rye to stop the erosion now is the prudent move. I do think that in the long run, bermuda solves your erosion problem, but will the customer accept a non-green lawn 7-8 months a year in TN? And yes, i would rent the skids and countour the hill now. And to state the obvious, it's not too late for a normal fall seeding program with annual ryegrass now to stabilize, followed by a recommended for your region cool season grass in Sept. They will tell you TTTF, but I find it clumpy, which makes it not good for hills. Which is why I like a bermudagrass like Sunbird, an aggressive rhizomic spreader.
