    We have a nice little yard. It suits us perfectly ATM with a toddler. It's just flat & grass.

    our house is on a medium suburban block of 680sqm, which is adequate.

    I would have liked a quarter of an acre for a suburban block.

    We have a 970 sqm block so a sizable backyard. We've got a massive covered entertaining area, grass, a vegie patch and various garden beds with a few big trees too. We have a trampoline and a cubby house with plenty of room left. We love it! It's great for parties and the kids to run around in.

    We live in an older suburb about 20mins from the city but blocks are getting smaller and smaller in the newer suburbs!

    Yes, it's quite big for being do close to the city, about 500m2, but I guess on the days it was built (90 years ago) it was the norm. Our front yard is tiny, but it's deceiving. People are amazed at the size of our backyard when they first see it.

    Our yard has 3 reasonable sized garden beds right up the back, bordering our fence. We have a fig tree, a lemon tree and an olive tree in them, plus some other plants. Our clothes line is on the other back border of the yard.

    We have a cubby house for the kids with a sandpit underneath and a slide connected to it.

    We have a big area of faux concrete and a big area of grass also.

    Our garage is part of our backyard and behind it is a BBQ area.

    Yeah we do. We live in a house, so it comes with a yard. Quite a big yard tbh... the yard is probably bigger than our house is. Actually, it WOULD be bigger than our house it.
