Thank you, Marigold, and Happy Thanksgiving! Our backyard is bigger than it looks because the buffer between the yards actually belongs to the city. When the houses on this block were built during the 40's and 50's, the residents opted to forego the usual alley in the back. People have driveways in front going to tuck-under garages, with no alley, thus bigger back yards. Each approach has its plusses and minuses. Mostly in these neighbourhoods front yards are more village-like, with sidewalks on the street and up to the front door. Garages (separate from the house) are on the alley that runs through the middle of the block. Each approach has its plusses and minuses. I like a more private back yard, but I think blocks that have all the garages and driveways in back look much more welcoming and homey.

I'll bet that's more than you wanted to know about backyards in upper Minnesota, Marigold. Shees!
