If you live in a house, what does your garden look like? Do you have a vegetable or herb garden? Do you spend much time there?

Cubby house, small vegetable garden, swing, 8 table setting, dog house, garden shed. Lots of grass. My daughter loves doing arts & crafts outside and role playing in her cubby house.
We've got a trampoline, a tomato plant, pumpkin vine, prolific macadamia nut tree, quite a few native plants, a big gum tree, lots of grass and a hills hoist. There is also a covered area with a table, chairs and a BBQ. We spend a lot of time in the backyard so like to make it comfortable.
Our garden looks like a bog in the winter, and very flowery in summer.

a third of our garden is taken up by the garage, another third by the tables, chairs and swing seat (which is covered by a weather proof sheet during winter), and the final part by the shed and guinea pig hutch. The guinea pigs gnaw our lawn down so much that it is nothing but a mud patch. In the summer the garden looks nices because Mum makes lots of hanging baskets.
Just plants, and a lawn that gets mowed frequently.
Our garden consists of: a water fountain, gardenia shrubs, a great lawn that is well maintained, some herb pots, our detached pergola that covers the outdoor entertaining seating and bbq.
Grass...more grass....and a lot more grass!!
I would love to have a garden, but we lives in apartment. So as of now I dont have backyard.
A vegetable garden, a three-room shed, a chook pen and four chooks, a BBQ, a park bench, and a few things my husband's grandfather has accumulated over the years.

We have a trampoline of which, like every other trampoline, the novelty has quickly worn off. There's a veggie patch that I look after sometimes. There's a flower bed with carnations and clivia, some trees big and small, and the occasional dog poo.
We have 2 chooks and two ducks (and their pen and little pond), a dozen fruit trees that are being espaliered, a bbq, outdoor table, vegie garden and lawn section. There is also a very messy shed!
Sit and read - there's a hammock and an outdoor beanbag. There's grass and bushes and a few trees but no pool!
Our garage opens onto our back yard, with a large patio half covered by iron and alsonite, and attached an area covered in shade cloth with tropical plants, pots, orchids, ferns growing, and another smaller area planted in the corner of our glassed walls to see the outside coming in. This area includes large 8 person outdoor glass top setting, and a small table with kindy chairs for the grand children, also a hooded bbq used often for extended family meals. Last year we had outdoor screens installed which slide up, these grey screens provide 90% block out of wind, sun and rain. The blinds have made the patio area much more user friendly and protected. The otherside of these blinds is open with a large garage, lawn, hills hoist, rose garden, fruit trees, vegetables, rain water tank, compost bin and more!! It's only a 600m block but amazing what we have been able to include once I start listing off what our backyard contains. I love this space which is totally private from all our neighbours, unless they're on their roof doing repairs!! ha ha. Also no-one can access our backyard without pin number as we have no gates or garage doors, accessible from the front without a remote or pin.
We have planted a lot of flowers and trees to attract the native birds and butterflies - we regularly have visiting Lorikeets, King Parrots, Kookaburras, Cockatoos, Galahs etc. and the occasional bright blue butterfly. The rest is of the backyard is filled with edible plants for humans - passionfruit vines, Asian greens, tomatoes and beans which the kids love picking and eating straight off the plant. Yum.
