Typically a small areas in the city between apartment buildings. These areas
are not official parks, gardens or grass. It is just a green accessible for 
everoyne. So we can say it is a *public* or *common* green.

So far I usually tagged such places as follows:

Made sure that it is within landuse=residential (as it is a residential 

Mapped physical features (leisure=playground, natural=tree, landuse=grass, 
highway=footway etc)

Is it landuse=grass or landcover=grass? I tend to agree with Alessandro 
Sarretta who uses landcover...

landcover=grass also would be fine in this case, but meaning of this tags is
the same and

landuse=grass is more popular


landcover=grass - still not rendered: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/

landuse=grass -  means that there will be landuse (grass) on landuse 
(residental). Is this OK? I'm not sure If I want to create a lots of 
multipolygons because of this.
