    Re: In a yard?

    I am not a teacher.

    What do you mean by a yard? A garden, a shipyard, Scotland Yard?

    'At a yard' requires some context to make any sense.

    There are three feet in a yard.

    Re: In a yard?

    That depends on context.

    I met her in/at the churchyard.
    I was standing in the churchyard.
    The ball I hit rolled all the way to the churchyard.
    As I walked home I passed by the churchyard.
    The flowers I stole came from the churchyard.

    "A monument was installed in the churchyard."
