And I disagree with all of them being leisure=garden.
The green patches between a road and a footway are not 'leisure' things 
.. they are 'safety' things .. particularly beside busy roads.

If these same areas were covered with concrete .. would you still think 
of them as 'leisure'? In other words .. are you associating the 'cover' 
with the 'use' of these areas?

Approach =the problem from 2 different ways of thinking -

What is the 'cover' ... landcover ?

and then

What is the 'use' ... landuse?

Once you divide those 2 things up it makes it clearer what is there.
