    3 × 8 yards


    possible lengths & widths for the given area of 24 square yards:

    1 and 24, 2 and 12, 3 and 8, 4 and 6

    of these four options, only 3 and 8 fit the requirement of the length of the garden being 5 yards more than the width of the garden. thus, the answer is 3 × 8 yards.
