Description Three back yards where people make for them a little paradise.

Back Gardens is a location found in Untitled Goose Game. Access to the location is granted after the Shopkeeper gets trapped in the garage on High Street, and opens the gate to return to her shop. Upon entering the area, a new to-do list will become available. After completing five tasks on the to-do-list, Tidy Neighbour will post a "No Goose" sign on his fence, near his gate. The next location (the Pub) is unlocked when the prize rose gets pruned or you glitch through the wall next to the bridge and garden (see the to-do list below) and Messy Neighbour removes part of her fence to make a "No Goose" sign.

After the miniature golden bell is stolen (see Model Village to-do list), the villagers will stop their normal activity and guard the passage out of the Back Gardens. If they spot the golden bell, they will retrieve it. Tidy Neighbour will throw the golden bell over the fence, and Messy Neighbour will place it in the basin by the bust. Both will then return to guarding the passage (they will resume their normal activity once the golden bell has been taken back home). During this time, the "danger" music will change.
