Mensagem:  I have a front yard, a back yard and two side yards. At the back of the house is a concrete patio. The patio is attached to the house where there is a set of double doors in the dining room. So, we can go in and out of the dining room right onto the patio. We have an enclosure on our patio. That’s a cage (gaiola) made of aluminum and with very fine screens. The screens keep out mosquitos and other bugs. They let in sunlight but it’s filtered to reduce the UV factor. If you want to see such an enclosure go to http://www.pensacolapools.com/custom_inground.html and look at the picture of the white cage over the swimming pool. We do not have a pool, just the enclosure. A patio can be made from concrete, bricks, paver stones, etc. It is not usually grass. Grass is a yard. Yes, yard is a very common word. "Hey kids, get outta the house!! You're too noisey. Go play in the yard!!"
