I can use my field for a BMX track :)

I have about an acre of unused land in my back yard its all over grown and everything, well there was supposed to be a garden but my mom got too lazy and decided not to plant anythign this year. Well I can build a small BMX track I already got 2 huge jumps, any suggestions?

Convince your parents that proper garden landscaping demands they rent a Bobcat. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

An exact replica of Stumpy's backard would be about right. Nothing less.

On a side note, the first jump at our track is pretty big, and nosebleed steep.
