What if its grass along a (maintained) river embankment, but roped off so no one can walk on it, as it is not a park?

What about the grass surrounding an airport (Narita's is well trimmed)?

What about the landscaping lawns that cover the front of large industrial facilities?


Perhaps "landscaping" is a good tag. It covers all your urban examples, and mine as well. 

But it implies man-chosen and maintained plants, so landscaping=trees would only be trees that were planted there =\ 

But it would appropriate for most decorative or "landcoverish" items around a city or building that normally wouldn't fall under the natural tag (wood,meadow,scrub) nor barrier=hedge, which is what i use for the hedges that are on so many islands and along so many walkways in Japan.
