More detail


Could you please clarify the difference to landuse=meadow and landuse=village green. --Daniel27 10:21, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

  • A meadow is not generally not formally landscaped. Grass areas often are. And there are many areas of grass which simply are not "village greens". For instance, a space of carefully manicured grass on a corporate campus, facing the driveway, with a fancy sign in the middle proclaiming "Welcome to XYZ Labs!" to impress visitors... neither a meadow nor a village green. -Fennecfoxen 00:26, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Feature already recognized

This feature is already in use and rendered, even though I think it's not on the wiki. E.g. here. Circeus 21:06, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

I believe it was introduced with JOSM and then added because of the wide use - see Bugreport and Tagwatch. --Landwirt 07:33, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
It might as well just be added directly to the landuse page then. Circeus 21:37, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

I came here looking how to tag an area of grass between a lake and a wood. It has a BBW grill and positioned stones for seats but it is not a park. It might be part of a nature reserve. It isn't mowed or grazed and I'm not sure if it exists because the wood was cleared back but I wouldn't call it a meadow because it is not a field and the grass is short. I wouldn't say its 'used' specifically for grass, it just exists a grass, so I'm not sure it deserves a landuse tag from my point of view . If I knew it was natural then I'd say it deserved a natural key, potentially Proposed_features/Grassland natural=grassland but given its potentially man made I guess I'll use this landuse=grass.

There is also grass, presumably owned by the council, in my village - its not a village green, its just unused space that is grass between buildings. It is mowed so I'll use landuse=grass for this too. --Loshu 08:44, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
