I don't have a garden, but I live in a flat which is in the highest floor and I have a balcony seventeen metres in lenght; therefore I can cultivate a lot of plants (about forty).

When I was a child, our backyard has a large number of pig trees, plummet trees, the willow tree, that had been covered diseases and became putrid in a short time. In any case, our backyard was a special place that all neighbors' children would come and play altogether. Even though our backyard has no lawn, and we would turn a disadvantage into an advantage. We were playing marbles  with friends, but we should have dug the floor before we play. My favorite activities were climbing the trees in the backyard to eat some pigs..

Yes, we've got a small area at the back of our house. My parents currently plant some vegetables for cooking at home. I'm always thinking about to modify that area like building a greenhouse so they don't need to worry about the weather,especially the rain. It's much better to consume home grown vegetables in our daily lives. Cause most of the vegetables from the market are grown with dosing lots of chemicals to look fresh and be sustainable.

No, I live in an apartment, but my parents' house does. It is a beautiful garden with a large lemon tree, a peach tree and some flowers...It also has a terrace where people can sit and enjoy a tea or even a barbecue. My parents' garden doesn't have a hedge, it is separated from the neighbours' gardens by walls.

In my parents' house, we have a nice garden with different flowers, trees and a nice lawn. Before spring and barbecue period, I used to clean the garden with the lawnmower while my mom was planting new and colorful flowers.

My parents have a garden at the back of the house. The garden is kind of large with many kind of fruits and vegetables. My dad grows banana, mango, guava and star fruit, he also plants cabbage, water morning glory and pumpkin. He thinks that vegetables which are sold in the market aren't good for health because they contain too much chemicals. My mom makes the garden more wonderful by planting flowers such as rose, daisy and paper flower. That is the reason why my parents are always busy in the morning. Anyway, I think they feel happy with their own garden. P/s: I lack of Writing skill, If you see my mistakes, please correct them for me! Thanks!

My house doesn't has any garden because i live in an apartment in the city. But my parent has some garden in my hometown. My parents are farmers. They plant coffees, durians to buy. Sometime when my mom has free time, she plants vegetables, corncobs... she also feed chickens and ducks. They worked hard to give their children a good life. I love them.

Hello admins, I just wanted to ask you how to use the word 'adjacent'. In my previous post, I used the word as a verb, but perhaps it doesn't have a verb form. So would this sentence be acceptable? "My garden is tiny but it is adjacent to other nearby gardens with each other. So I can enjoy viewing a bigger garden than it was supposed to be!" Correct me, please. (๑ت๑)

Hello Rafaela1

In the sentence in this comment, 'adjacent' is used correctly, but it sounds a little strange since it is a formal word and the rest of the sentence is not. Most of the time, people would say 'next to' here. What I'd recommend is something even simpler: 'My garden is tiny, but since it is next to other gardens, I can enjoy viewing a bigger garden!' 

All the best

I live in a flat so I don´t have a garden but I would like to have one with a orchard and a greenhouse to grow vegetables, a lots of plants and al least two trees to have a hammock. I really enjoy spend time outodors! Is it correct this text?

Hello AdrianaPC

I'm afraid we don't correct our users' texts, though we're happy to help with single phrases or sentences. In any case, your text is all correct except for 'spend'. After the verb 'enjoy', we use an '-ing' form.

All the best
