Backyard Renovation Ideas 108

A back yard (or backyard) is a yard at the back of a house, common in suburban developments in the Western world.

In cold-weather regions, it is economical in low land value regions to use open land surrounding a house for vegetable gardening during summers and allowing strongly demanded sunlight to enter house windows from a low horizon angle during winters. As land value increases, houses are built nearer to each other.

In order to preserve some of the open land, house owners may choose to allow construction on the side land of their houses, but not build in front of or behind their house in order to preserve some remnants of open surrounding land. The back area is known as the backyard, or more commonly in the UK and some other parts of Europe as the back garden (if cultivated).
