    Default Do you have a backyard?

    And by backyard I mean a 'reasonable' amount of room to run around... probably with grass?

    As we would all be well aware, average land size is shrinking, especially if you live in a city.

    I'll add a poll.

    As for me, we have a paved courtyard.

    I would LOVE to have more outside space, but the $$$ necessary to achieve this have ruled it out for now at least.

    Yep, it means we had to move further out than I'd planned but still only 20 mins from the city. I would seriously struggle with three kids and no yard. I think the trampoline saves my sanity. And I love my hills hoist.

    When we were saving for our deposit we lives in lots of flats, and I really think its part of the reason I fou d it hard with two littlies- I couldn't just open the backyard and let them run wild.

    Yes. Fenced out the back, unfenced front yard with garden bed.

    We have a courtyard with grass. It's ok sized as far as courtyards are and I am glad I have room to put a climbing frame and wading pool and outdoor setting. However I grew up with a massive garden with a pool. All we did was play outside all day every day. I do wonder what my girls are missing out on...

    DH wants to move closer to the city which would mean less room. I swing between thinking it doesn't matter and a courtyard is fine.. to wanting to move into the country where we could afford to buy a big house with a good amount of land and have animals and kids running around...

    Yep, we are lucky to have a fairly big backyard with room for a cubby, swing set, trampoline and clothes line and grass to run on (and mow!).

    We have a massive back yard but its unusable due to to bull ants that are every where.
