VIII.2.28, VIII.2.29, VIII.2.30 centre and VIII.2.34 from rear.
The rear garden would have been built on the volcanic ledge, behind the green bushes.  According to Jashemski, in the eastern house, VIII.2.30, the rooms at the rear opened onto a narrow portico (2.20m wide) supported by columns joined by a wooden fence. A few steps led down from this portico to the small garden which had been built over and beyond the city wall by constructing a support wall on the lava ledge.
In the middle of the garden was a pool. On the street level, the rooms at the rear of this double house opened onto two wide terraces from which there would have been a magnificent view. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.208)
