I have a couple of drainage ditches that I would like to line with something.

Anybody have any ideas short of a concrete ditch?

A common solution we use a lot for tidying them up and preventing erosion is large stones called "rip-rap", it is basically gravel that is about 6" pieces.

You clean out and grade the ditch, lay in some sort of geotextile fabric, VERY loose so it wont get ripped, then just lay the stone in starting from the bottom and wortking your way up-slope one layer deep. The rock allows lots of flow, but slows the speed of the water and stops it from scouring the ground. The fabric not only holds the earth in place, but it helps stop plant growth as well.

Best of luck. ....
