the main part is a steep slope and their are 2 flat sections.I have a lot of dirt to use.I am a beginner mountainboarder but the nearest place to go to is hale superbole (an hours drive away) and i cant drive so i have only been twice.I have a bit of money to spend on things such as grinds and i have already built one jump (out of wood),it is 2 - 3 foot high and quite steep (gets me about 6- 8 foot far)

if u have down flat down sections, depending how long the flats are, I would use the down slopes for the landings. to be honest if i had a garden for riding id probably just keep all my jumps wood so that they could be shifted around easily.

It depends how steep your landing is. The steeper the landing, the steeper the jump can be. You can't really go wrong though, don't be scared to try.

Get some 4 inch wide PVC pipes for your rails. Super cheap. Home Depot near me also has wooden posts about 10 feet long and around 3 inches wide for 4 bucks. Probably would be good for a wood rail.
