    I think you might need to consider additionally setting some ground cover plants. I think that Ice Plant flowers and Vinca does as well. I guess you could also cover the soil with rock in-between what you plant. Perhaps asking a neighbor who has a similar yard for suggestions might help also.

    You can dig and make a trench with pre-treated wood or a wall built from landscape wall stone

    No matter which idea you use, your slope will have to be terranced.

    I agree with the terracing. I have one terrace in front that the house is on and two in the back yard. We are on a steep hill from north to south(house facing north) and from west to east. I don't think I have a perfectly level space except where the house is. Terracing is the way to go. You can also make mini terracing for a few narrow gardening spots for accent planting.
