Looking out our front door, the back (East) and left (South) sides
of our house are both
pushed as far as possible against the property line so as to maximize
the front (West) and right (North) views of the golf course.
(See the plat.)
So technically, we do not have a "back yard", but our right side yard
is what we call the back yard.
It is a large, tree-filled, sloping area,
covered with mulch -- no grass nor gravel.

The Gardenias which died were preceded by Hostas which also did poorly.
We suspect that they were getting too much water.
The Yews and Pyracantha (right edge of picture) were planted to
screen off the underside of the deck from below.
