Is the USA the only country that calls a backyard a “backyard” instead of a “garden”?

Question by Tell me about it: Is the USA the only country that calls a backyard a “backyard” instead of a “garden”?
We use “garden” as well, but only for a portion dedicated to flowers, herbs, fruits..etc..

For example, you may or may not have a garden in your back yard.
But are we the only country that uses that term??

  1. no UK calls it a backyard when it is solid floor slabs rather think expression came from uk

  2. They call it a backyard in Australia as well. We also call it a garden whether it has flowers or not it could be a grass only area.

  3. Now I’m confused. I live in the US and my backyard is in the middle of my garden. RScott
