This property’s tailor-made for people who want a backyard with low-key upkeep. A third of the yard at this one-bedroom duplex is covered in slate, and the lawn is high-grade artificial turf that’s soft under bare feet and requires only an occasional vacuuming. A Norway maple offers shade. The space is substantial, too: It’s nearly half the size of the apartment.

It’s not exactly rural Vermont, but this backyard is a nice respite from the constant subway digging on nearby Second Avenue. The apartment itself, a nicely renovated studio on the ground floor of a highrise co-op, is about the same size as the yard, so for three seasons a year, you’ll effectively have twice your usual space.

The skies look that much wider from this sweet East Village spot: No tall buildings are nearby to overshadow it, and the yard has a dogwood and peach and pear trees. It’s in a co-op conversion with five units; only this groundfloor one-bedroom gets the outdoor space, though.

Address: 67-68 Austin St., Forest Hills
The backyard of this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath was clobbered last year by heavy storms, but it’s since received a complete makeover with the help of a professional landscaper, who planted boxwoods, azaleas, hydrangeas, and an array of other foliage that’ll keep the yard in bloom all summer and into the fall. The house also has a garage, so you’ll have somewhere to stash all the gardening gear.

A chef once owned this wood-and-brick multifamily, planting his own hops and herbs out back. As a result, the yard’s unbelievable for growing stuff: It’s covered in two feet of blended organic compost, Long Island topsoil, peat moss, and pine bark. The pergola is cedar, garlanded by grapevines. Even the outdoor lights were handmade.

This 1848 house has plenty of fine old details but has been modernized from top to bottom. Off the kitchen, French doors open up to a bluestone backyard lined by planters that lead, via a staircase, to a terrace on the parlor floor. The property was on the market last year and fetched three offers, but (owing to a persuasive tenant) was pulled till now.

The backyard of this one-and-a- half-bedroom is a little bare, but it has the potential to be a showstopper. The landlord is putting in custom trellises; rosebushes and grapevines are already in the ground.

A staircase off the living room of this one-bedroom condo leads down to a yard that’s so large a tent was once raised here for a party. Hostas, boxwoods, and a luxuriant maple tree add to the ambience.
