A similar logic would have private roads not mapped. Yet they are.
Same for private buildings, farm yards, woods, beaches and so on.

There is a local yearly garden exhibition that opens up private gardens. 
Only some gardens and of those not every year. So it is not possible to 
state an 'opening' time, but it is possible to map them as 
leisure=garden, access=private.
