The wiki page on garden [1] explicitly mentions private gardens, e.g.
around castles.
So yes, for a private garden, you will have the tags:
landuse=residential, access=private, leisure=garden + smaller polygons
with landcover tags for grass areas, flowers, bushes, trees and
parhaps natural=water for ponds.

I'm not sure about the residential landuse. Perhaps you could think of
recreation_area as well (the wiki page does mention that
recreation_areas can be private as well).
