    Somebody needs to post a pic of Zuroske's back yard. Well, those no yard left, but it's quite impressive.

    Size of a compact car?!?! I'm not sure what land goes for in your area, but a rock like that, put in place, will cost more than a brand new bike.

    In my neck of the woods you only have nice landscaping rocks if they were already on the land or were unearthed during excavation.

    About $0.50/lb. So a nice size rock would be around $4K.

    Delivered? That's not too bad. Though a rock the size of a compact car would probably weight double that.

    Hell yeah. Stucco/shotcrete the thing if you want it to look more rock-like !

    Stolen gates, geezus. Sounds like an awful lot of damn work to me, but I don't think like a scumbag thief either.

    I may underestimated the weight of the rock, or overestimated the size of the compact car. :D

    I even thought about building steps with wood and brick, and cover them in concrete to look more natural. It looks a lot of work, so I may stay per now with my ridable stumps.

    You'd think with a backyard like this, I'd be a better rider, but I'm not.:1drink

    Growing up during the 80's we had a Duster (the Gold model) in the back yard that we rode over with the TY's.

    I was on my TY80 and forgot to pull a wheelie off the trunk ..... one time. Front tire of course tucked under and the rear fender came up between my legs and the curved frame bar said HELLO very aggressively to my tender bits.

    The Webb’s backyard outside of SantaFe is one of the best I have ever seen.

    It looks perfect to me. Tons of steps, dry and slippery areas, trees... And 100% natural! It misses only a small stream.
