The tag landuse=flowerbed is used to map land used for flowerbeds, an area used to grow decorative flowers. Often these features are found within a leisure=park or leisure=garden.

Land for flowerbeds mapped with this tag should typically be at ground level (ignoring any undulations in the absolute level due to uneven ground). If the area is a raised structure with a border made from a different material, used to contain plants the tag man_made=planter should be used instead.

Tags used in combination

  • surface=* – can be used to show the surface of the top level of filling in the flowerbed (below any plants/flowers).
