First time home owner needs advice of what to do with back of house...


I bought a bi-level house built into a hill and the back of the house (top of the hill) needed a sloping backfill to keep surface water off the foundation. What do I do now?...plant something? landscaping rocks?...I am in Michigan btw

Should have added more fill and some top soil so the grade was more gradual and just plant some gress over it.
