so i was wondering since my jumps are near a stream but the dirt jumps always get dry and crumble if planting grass on the sides of the jump for extra strength would be a good idea

The absolute best erosion control. Spread loose straw out and stomp it in to the sides and top of your jumps (while moist) and it will keep them from eroding in serious downpours. It does not take much. It works great. I form straw into my berms and any erosion prone area on my trails to keep them from eroding. It will keep water from heading in the same direction and creating a rut. It is an ancient form of erosion control for mud homes I thought it must work for jumps and bad trail erosion. I have found no downsides and am surprised this hasn't been a standard.

That's really cool, thanks for the tip. Gonna have to try it with my trails after a stop at the local pet store Smile .
