I apologize if this has been asked before, but I wasn't even sure what question to look for.
In English, if I said the sentence:
I helped clean and prune the garden in the backyard.
Of course, it seems that when I refer to cleaning and pruning, I am talking about the garden in the backyard. My question is, how can I make it seem like I am talking about cleaning the backyard as a whole, but only pruning the garden, without any redundancy?
If I say:
I helped clean the backyard and prune the garden in the backyard.
Is it not redundant to say "backyard" twice?
