I'd suggest some broken household appliances and maybe an old bed. Kids love playing with dangerous sharp metallic objects and adults can sit on them whilst getting shit-faced.

More seriously, don't go for artificial grass. Cleaning dog/cat/squirrel/fox/toddler poo off it is a nightmare.

My Chinese multimeter can measure hfe but not antibodies. And Huawawheheiwei is spying on my voltages.  What use is that?

You need a Wheatstone Bridge, but the Germans bombed most of those in the war.

Oooooh, get her, Alan fucking Titchmarsh now, are we?

White paint the walls is the only other suggestion but I thought that was a bit too much work.

I always thought "back yard" was an American term. And garden was more British. But looking at the photo I think the Americans have it right. That is closer to a builder's yard than a garden. As you were...

When I was a kid - this was up north - a yard was what Mr Scum has - basically small and paved - whereas a garden had grass and soil and stuff. The conventions for naming might be different down south.

I am a midlander by birth so we were always confused. I still haven't come out since I've been down South.

Paint the walls something light and neutral and then get a load of pots and planters, could make it qute civilised. Right time of year to get everything growing. Wooden table and chairs with a parasol and a couple of benches

Are you thinknig of repaving or trying to avoid that? A dose of weedkiller and a good jetwash would help if not.

You could do a nice job relatively cheaply if you do renew it, I did some years ago in a similar space.

And don't forget the twigs in a pot of course.
