Yard adds to the rear two sides of your ranch, you can place everything except crops on it and it's cheaper
Expansion adds to the front two sides of your ranch and you can place anything on it but it's more expensive
Actually, the price kind of see saws back and forth as to which is cheapest. I always go for the cheapest expansion/yard. I have topped out on yards and now at 32x32 expansion.
