*Can you say...

I don't know if it varies by region at all, but here's how we use the words in Australia. I suspect it's the same in the US and the UK, but I'll need people to confirm that for me.

A yard is typically just an enclosed area behind a house. A yard could consist of grass, concrete, tiles, dirt etc.

A garden is an area set aside for flowers, hedges or vegetables to grow. Most yards contain at least one garden.

For example, look at these images:

Each image is of a yard, but only the parts set aside to grow plants could be called gardens.

This is a yard without a garden:

This website talks about how to make a garden without a yard:

At least in the US, a yard can also be in front of a house. Usually distinguished by front yard and backyard.
