Meadow IMO means there is some usage taken from the grass/hay (Weide,

I use landuse=grass in urban areas (Grünstreifen am Straßenrand), for grass
areas that are not a garden but there usage is just to have a (nicht-versiegelte
Fläche; whatever that means in English) green spot there. Another usage: eine
Böschung (whatever that means in English? batter?).

Those are man-made, not "natural". And "landuse" makes no sense there, for
instance a 1m x 1m "landuse" of grass around a tree.

ceterum censeo landusem esse delendam ;) (for all the neo-Romans here ;)
