Does the verb 'to treat' make sense in this context:



"They had a vegetable garden, but it didn't seem very well-treated."



And is there another word (or even a single word) for a piece of land where vegetables or crops are cultivated?

"well-treated" isn't too bad. I'd say it's acceptable. You could say

The garden didn't seem well-tended.
... didn't seem to be maintained very well.
... didn't seem to be kept up very well.
... seemed unkempt.
... seemed neglected.
... seemed untidy.
