We have a medium size yard with room for swings climbing frame and an outdoor setting. There are two sheds belonging to landlord we don't us taking up space that we don't use but it serves it's purpose.

We have just built our house on a 1100sqm block. The house, shed and patio take up about 500 sqm of that which means lots of backyard and side access.
I eventually want to put a pool in and I am really glad I can do this and also have gardens and lawn area. We also have just started up our vegie patch.
We are 15 mins from the biggest town. It is perfect for us

We are renting a property with a decent yard. It has a big undercover verandah area then a bit of grass. It's big enough for us, and there is a park one house away, and then at the end of the street... So we have plenty of room

We have just moved into a rental with an acre. And we just went into quite an amount of debt to buy 2 acres in Brisbane's North West suburbs to move into after we are finished here.
It is very important to us to have a lot of outdoor room.
Just moved from Perth where we had a postage stamp sized piece of lawn. I hated it, and it is so so common where we were.

Our new house has a small yard what some would call a courtyard (inner Melb) but it sits on a reserve, so we open our side gate and the kids have a whole football oval and playground to play on. I prefer the smaller yard at our new place, this house we're still living at has grass and its alot of maintenance.

I grew up on a dairy farm so always had plenty of space. Dh and I have always bought properties with yard space, nothing less than quarter acre and wouldn't live somewhere where we had no space. We enjoy our space and gardening and take pride in our lushious lawns, we spend a lot of time outdoors and its important for our boys.

25 acres of bush
no grass, just wildflowers, gumtrees, motorbike tracks, kangaroos......
built our own 'park' with tree swings, cubby house, boat, see saw, spa and working on a flying fox.
it's a hard life but someone has to do it....

I have a tiny balcony. About 1.5 x 2m. It's fine, we have 2 playgrounds really close by and a huge central courtyard (which is sort of the driveway so i do have to always stick very close to DS.)
We just spend all day out of the house. He probably spends more time outside than lots of kids with yards do.
