what to do when a slope meets a sidewalk…

last month

We have a steep slope in front of the house, and it meets the sidewalk. The grass is spilling over onto the side walk, and this rock pseudo-retaining wall that was there before we moved in is not cutting it where it is. We had a contractor here for a sump pump and he said something about a retaining wall costing about 20,000, which is definitely not something we have in the budget, especially after paying for a sump pump and french drains. Help? We are supposed to maintain sidewalks in front of our house and we can’t leave the grass spilling over it. And the “stone wall” looks like it’s about to fall over. Any ideas short of a $20k retaining wall welcome.
