Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi! I'm doing a Kent State University data and was wondering what the best way to map the Judith A. Beyer Murin Gardens. These gardens are important to the university and are a monument to a historically significant figure, so it is important that they are mapped correctly.

Currently they are mapped as part of a multipolygon but on the ground it is not exactly clear what is in the garden and what is separate. Given this what is the best way to map the gardens? Thank you for your time!

At the very least the relation needs a leisure=garden tag!

I presume that these are formal plantings. Unfortunately we dont have a commonly used tagging scheme for gardens.

Hi Johnny, Many gardens are just marked with a boundary, even the famous Keukenhof has one border, http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/52.2695/4.5406 and none of the flower beds is marked individually. Your question is almost the same as this problem, the exact border or some that looks like as a question passed some time ago, https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/49606/mapping-park-boundaries-de-facto-or-de-jure
I would go for a less correct border (de-jure) and specify the individual patches with the actually species growing there, using the already present multipolygone.
