Yard (disambiguation)

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A yard is a unit of length in some measuring systems.

Yard can also mean:

  • Yard (land), an open space around a building. For instance, the space around a school is called a school yard. A yard is used by humans and their pets. If there is wild space next to it, like forest land, swamp land, a beach or a lake, this will not normally be considered "part of" the yard – the yard ends at the edge of it.
  • Yard (sailing), a spar on a traditional sailing ship
  • Brickyard, a place where bricks are made or stored
