By this I have tried to incorporate the idea that in case of residential
garden it doesn't really matter if you have a nice garden in the french
style or a plain lawn.

This was mostly copied out of wikipedia, but your definition is better,
I would just change the last "and" to "or".

Makes sense, I'll change that

I have thought about that, but...
1) We need the prefix, so it is clear type/style of what we are tagging.
2) It is true that leisure=park is somewhat similar to the garden, but I
still consider a park as more or less grassy area with fewer plants, or
at least smaller variety. And personally I don't know any area where I
would hesitate if I should tag it as a park or garden - usually most of
the local folks call it one way or the other and the area often has one
of the words in its name.
3) This could in theory incorporate many of other tags like
landuse=allotments,vineyard,orchard etc., but I guess these are meant
for rather large scale, and I think they should stay where they are
(landuse key). I think leisure=garden should be located exclusively in
landuse=recreation_ground, or residential (for garden:type=residential),
maybe even landuse=allotments if anyone wants to tag each property
