“decorative” is not a good name, if the intention is mapping only greenery. I would add a component or use a wording which makes it more specific, e.g. “greenery” or “verdure” or maybe “decorative_planting”?

If this was intended for all kind of decorative installations, maybe landuse=street_decoration? Although I would see these generally as elements (e.g. amenity or man_made) within a landuse like “highway”.

If you want to see the landcover tag rendered, one of the most important things to do is use it wherever it can apply.
