bramble bank at end of garden

i would be grateful for any ideas of what to do with a quite steep sloping bank at the bottom edge of my garden - i've cleared alot of the brambles away so its just a brown mess now - plus we have a 'waterfall' of heavy clay earth right in the middle of it thrown out by badgers digging a tunnel to exit here! we don't mind the badgers but how can we make it look better without 'closing in ' the garden ie we like to keep as much spacious feel as poss.
You don't say the size and whether or in full sun or partial or full shade.
A photo would be useful so we can see the area and the surrounding garden.
Cotoneaster will grow there and keep it stabilised, regardless of the aspect. You could also just plant a few shrubs, or small trees, at the base of the slope - in the same area where the conifer is - which will disguise it a bit.
Badgers are protected too, so you'd have to make sure you plant things which can withstand their digging. If it's a wilder area, it's often a case of just hiding things a bit, and letting nature use it.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
