Hill erosion affecting pool

Hill erosion affecting pool

Hill erosion affecting pool

Hi there,

I have an inground pool in my back yard. Around the pool is your basic cement walking deck. Directly after the deck, is about 3 feet of shrubs and then a steep drop. In one area on the drop side, the earth has eroded and there is a hole directly at the cement. It is affecting the pool. The coping on that side of the pool is moving away and there is about a 1 inch gap. There are some cracks in the cement on the corner created by the downward sloping of that side.  I could supply pictures if that help. I feel like if I cannot retain that area, there will be major problems. I am not sure how to retain the area though, since the incline is so steep.
