Since the house represents your 'inner architecture' and ideas related to what the individual rooms represent, the yard has more of an association with how you 'go out' to meet the world in social situations. The front yard represents how you interact in social situations and what you reveal to others and cultivate in terms of appearance. The backyard is more private and can represent aspects that you keep hidden or issues you may not be confronting. Something happening in the front yard can represent changes you are making through public interaction, while something happening in the backyard can represent aspects of a more personal nature. See Front and Back Yard under Houses and Buildings.
