Build "forms" for your jumps out of wood sheets and then cover them with dirt so it looks more "natural". The wood forms should hold the jumps alot better than just dirt alone. Also, I would consider finding a new bashing spot if there's alot of oil on the ground.......sounds unhealthy.

well, it just makes the dirt really fine and dusty when water is applied, the water seperates from the dirt

another thing, for one of my big jumps, i used an old trash can to form my jump, and filled it up with dirt from the inside out
