I've a very small garden. I love growing plants (in particular cactus, because they don't need so much care, indeed I'm not so good in gardening).
I live in a big city, so having a garden is an unusual thing T-T

Hello admins,
Can you help me?
I've learned that British people say "garden" and American people say "yard". And I thought "yard" was a small area for plants usually at the back of the house. Is my understanding correct?

Yes, exactly! Here are a few more details. In Britain, the word "yard" indicates a space which is probably concreted over. It might be used to store something (like tools or rubbish bins) or it might be used for some commercial activity (e.g. shipyard, lumberyard, junkyard) and it doesn't necessarily have any plants at all. And in the USA, a "garden" is a particular part of the yard which is used to grow vegetables or flowers.

my house is very small, so we have not enough space to have a garden. I always hope that: I can save money to buy another bigger house.

I have 3 gardens in the different parts of my house. One of it is outside my house which consists of a beautiful lawn with flowers of different colours and a beetle nut tree. The second one is on the first floor where my grandparents live, it is mainly composed of flowers and creepers. The third one is on the 4th floor which consists of mainly all kinds of plants that require pots.

My house has a garden, but not as much on the garden as the garden in this exercise. I have an agility course for our dog that's about it.

I think new words should have thier spelling. For example: beautiful / 'bju:t3ful/ . I'll know spelling and stress of each word. I think it's better. I hope that the website will consider! Thank you so much!!!
