Awesome Backyard

When you look at someone's backyard it can look so cool. Some people have large backyards, and some have small backyards. You never see 2 backyards the same. My students will be ddesigning their own backyard with a few important parts included in their backyard.

Backyard Measurements

Your backyard is one acre in area.
One acre comprises 4,840 square yards or 43,560 |square feet (which can be easily remembered as 44,000 square feet, less 1%; or as the product of 66 ft. x 660 ft.). Because of alternative definitions of a yard or a foot, the exact size of an acre also varies slightly. Originally, an acre was understood as a of land sized at one (660 ft) long and one chain (66 ft) wide; this may have also been understood as an approximation of the amount of land an ox could plough in one day. .
