OK, I see what you mean (I was confused anyway because I remembered
also a different content ;-) ). Still the old version is IMHO not
useful either. On one hand it is an identical meaning to park. On the
other "decorative" and "structured" are highly subjective terms when
it comes to gardens. Are you aware of the two main lines of European
Reading your post I get the feeling that you think mainly about garden
as a French Garden. Still I'm missing the difference from
"leisure=garden" and "leisure=park", that's why I think it's not a bad
idea to change the meaning of leisure=garden also officially in OSM.

wiki definition, that's probably why someone changed it.

what if someone decides not to cut his grass? It would IMHO still be a garden.
