My yard isn't fenced so I can't actually let my almost 4yr and almost 6 yr olds outside totally unsupervised but...
I do let them go play outside right in the back yard while I sit at the dining room table (the dining room has french doors that look right out into the back yard). I keep the door cracked open so I can hear what is going on and the rule is that they have to be within sight and hearing. If I have to go to a different room for some reason, where I cannot see or hear them, they have to come inside. If my yard were fenced I would have no qualms at all about them being out there with a less supervision although I think it's likely that I would still want to keep a door or window cracked so that I could hear what they were up to and wouldn't be comfortable not checking on them regularly.
