Whenever you can find the function of the area it's better to choose 
landuse, but I have hard time trying to guess what is the "use" of grass 
in general. You're right - natural=* namespace is rather unsuitable here 
and landcover is just safer.

You may even consider landcover=lawn scheme, but Taginfo tells that it's 
currently unused and instead landcover=Lawn (with a big "L") is used 626 
times, strangely enough.
