I dont want to spend a fortune on terracing or hard scapes, but I need to stabilize the hillside.

    I'm not an expert, but depending on how steep it is, you might need a professional.

    If it's not a threat to property or people, find out what kind of plants that thrive in your climate zone, and plant them on the hillside.

    I have just a small steep slope and I planted lots of hosta, some larger shrubs, a few small trees, etc. It did help to keep soil from washing down.

    I had a steep slope and I used car tyres to terrace it, like you would do with bricks.
    but not sure of the laws in your country about using old car tyres. 😊
