As the place to play in and around one’s home, the yard may symbolize recreation or the carefree days of youth. As a metaphor for a unit of measure, the yard may signify a great length or quantity (yards and yards of material).

A house represents your sense of self, and the yard is the part of the house that bridges the gap between your personal identity and your public persona.
A yard is connected to the house itself, so that it is directly expressing part of who you are. It is outside and therefore is also related to the public part of yourself that you allow people to see.
Since people have a lot invested in how they present their yards for public scrutiny, the yard in your dream is a symbol for this very same kind of attention toward superficial details that project a desired identity that may or may not be true to what is happening on the inside.
A front yard is more public, and the back or side yard to a house relates to the same general interpretation, with the caveat that a deeper sense of privacy or an invitation is required in order for that part of your nature to be visible.
