Have you taken any classes? I'd start there or hookup with a good instructor. You need to do a lot of foundation and flatwork first. Equipment can usually be borrowed or you can use other people's space. I have a tiny yard and only a few jumps, but I've borrowed weaves from my instructor, done a drop-in practice at a friend's house with a huge yard and more equipment, or pay a $10 floor fee to use the training center. I would focus on the training first, and not the equipment. Then I'd start with 3-5 jumps, and maybe 3 sets of 2x2 weaves if you use that method. That's all I've ever had and I've trained two dogs to a competitive level.
