    In (at) backyard

    Hello,

    How does it hear better? I'm in the backyard or I'm at the backyard?

    Thank you!

    Thank you!
    If you are standing inside the confines of the backyard, then "in the backyard". If you have arrived at the fence or the gate of the backyard, you could say "at the backyard". The first is more common though.

    Note my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You're welcome, but there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves everybody's time.
