bowling greens
Explanation:
No idea what the second and third words are, but the first one looks to me like the English term "bowling green" in Cyrillic. These are normally places for playing the game of bowls, but they are also grass areas lower than their surroundings. Possibly the term is used in landscaping to describe such an area, whether the game of bowls is played on it or not.

boulingrins


Explanation:
Just as Jack Doughty, I haven't been too successful with the last two terms, but - while agreeing with him about the likely origin of the word - there is the term 'boulingrin' I found in my old school French dictionary, and it means "enclosed lawn area" in general, not necessarily limited to bowling purposes. That's what you're looking for.

For the second term I haven't managed to unearth anything definite, but deciphering the Russian phonetics in a French way, one gets something like "vert de bougadain" or "vert de bougadin" or "vert de bugadin".
The "vert de" is fairly definite.
Maybe someone else can help you along on this basis.

No luck at all with N° 3, I'm afraid. Any search for 'diete' invariably produced something to do with slimming, with fees/remuneration or with algae.

Sorry - hope to have been of a little help. This is a tough one!

lawn / grass-plot / greensward


Explanation:
Это варианты перевода французского boulingrin, которые я раскопал в Nouveaux Dictionnaires paralleles des langues russe, francaise, allemande et anglaise, издание 1858 года(!). Русский перевод гласит: лужёк; место, устланное дерном.
Как ни странно, но google дает несколько ссылок для сочетания

Explanation:
Продолжаю искать, т.к. самой стало интересно.
Насчет "вердбюгаденов" точно, что вторая часть слова происходит от немецкого Garten - сад. Пока не нахожу соотвествия первой части.
Можно обеспечить больше контекста о диэтах?
