The hubby and I live in a condo so, we have 4 balconies..and a little patch of grass outside our front door. lol We have community areas outside like a giant deck and boat docks. Basically, I feel like I have very little grass. lol Btw., we never would have bought this place if we had children..because, I would want them to have a big backyard to play. (Anyway, I've been procrastinating...I need to get flower boxes for the balconies.)

I have a fenced in side/front yard that has a deck and grass, and the back has grass, sand and a cement patio. Im soooo over the sand, the dogs just poop in it! I want a pond or something peacefull....

I am lucky enough to live in a condo apartment with a huge private deck attached. It is the only one in the building so it is very private, I grow a lot of herbs and plants on it. Unfortunatly, it is still squirrel accessible :-( and they rip the heads off of any flowers, so only non-flowering plants!

I live in a townhouse that has an atrium between the house and the garage. It's a great place to let my cats enjoy some fresh air w/o having to worry about them. I've also taken showers in the rain and sunbathed in the nude. It's fantastic! ;)

like rubialala, we also live in a condo, but we have a common roof deck. it's actually really awesome. we can see a really nice view of the city (philly) from there, including city hall. AND it's a great place to just hang out.

Well, there is the... um, beach. And the public gardens and the main avenue and stuff.

Would love a private outdoor space, even a balcony but I don't. It's on my wish list for someday.

I have a big yard that is full of weeds and desperately in need of landscaping. We are budgeting for a new fence next summer. I managed to plant some trees this year. It is a work in progress.

I have a tiny little apartment deck that about two people at a time will fit on, and I'm on the 2nd floor, so no yard. One day...

I'm so lucky that I have a huge deck overlooking a pretty garden--in the middle of San Francisco! It's amazing to be in the heart of the city yet have all that greenery and outside space :-D

We have a good sized yard with a new deck that my husband installed in May. I love it, it's made out of trex-like material so all we have to do it hose it off when the dog gets it muddy.

It's actually a slab of cement surrounded by scraggly grass and plants that keep dying because the dog keeps trashing them. We do have a bird feeder that attracts lots of pretty birds, though.
