My wife and I have recently purchased a home in the city of Minneapolis. The previous owners did some gardening, but failed to address the issue I'm asking about.
As you can see from my attached photos, the area next to the alley as well as the area in front of the house along the sidewalk are experiencing erosion (runoff). The highest point of the soil in the areas in question is about 8" higher than where the soil meets the concrete.What are our options in preventing this from happening?
We need to balance cost as well as our relative novice skills in addressing this.
Thank you for your shared knowledge.
