Get a professional to do the grading; it'll be worth the cost.
Grading is physically arduous to do by hand; grading with a
machine on a hill is not for amateurs. There are lots of hardy
perennials that are good at holding soil and can give you some
interesting flowers. Shasta daisy, daylily, monarda, echinacea,
oenothera, lupines, and iris are all plants that I've used for
this from time to time. With a nice mixed border, you could have
something almost always in bloom.
