@Norm, thanks for the advice. Will take your points in to consideration.@thanniel we have put some stuff in our backyard, not far from you in Warren. You've got a few things to consider with this. .25 acres is a pretty limited space, so you need to be creative. Also - are you sure you want to go all-in on the wood? If you have a questionable neighbor this could end up with the town and you being forced to tear it all down. It's actually something we worry about.
To me your biggest start point is going to be getting speed. We built a huge ramp to get you about 5' off the ground, then everything starts there. Gravity is awesome but you need to get yourself up there to use it. If you can start on your roof, all the better. This is where you'll burn a lot of your money on the wood.
I would consider dirt for some of your features. If you use wood you get 1 chance, then if it sucks you need to tear it apart & restart. Dirt gives you more room to tweak things. It also erodes so there is a tradeoff. We use a combination. Later this year we expect to add a wall ride. But we have some work to do before we get there yet.
Not fenced on all the sides. I will research more on this. Thanks for bringing up. As my backyard is next to open woods, I actually get more deers/animals coming to my backyard than people so having more obstacles might actually be a good thingIs your yard fenced? There may be legal liability concerns with building stuff in your back yard. I forget the exact term, but it's similar to having a pool.
Thanks. I will reach out to them.Here is a pro builder friend of mine. He's based on Long Island but comes to NJ. No idea on pricing but give him a call/email.
