Mensagem: 

There at least two kinds of gardens:  flower gardens and vegetable gardens.  Sometimes it's not clear which the speaker means.  The flower garden could be anywhere, but the vegetable garden is rarely in front of the house.

 

"Quintal" means backyard, but houses also have a "frontyard".  Maybe it has flowers, maybe it doesn't.  Typically it will have at least a lawn and maybe some trees.
