eroded foundation

Due to the rain water from the roof emptying at this spot under my deck, the soil has eroded so much that it seems like a bottomless pit- the area is also not accessible easily since its under the deck. I could have dirt shoveled in although I'm not sure this will help. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Mal

Shoveling in more dirt to erode does not solve the problem.

Just collect the water and then distribute to wherever you choose. If you have a two pipe waste system pipe go to the gray water system (if allowed) or to where you can discharge it without damage the the property or surrounding property.

Install a rain gutter to carry the water away from your house.
