Curtilage is the land, usually but not necessarily enclosed, that encompasses the yard and buildings surrounding a dwelling that is used in the daily activities of domestic life. Included in curtilage would be the garage, barn, shed, garden, chicken coop, etc. The determination of what constitutes curtilage is important for purposes of the FOURTH AMENDMENT, which protects us from unreasonable search and seizure.
