Maybe add a UWA like the 17-40 or 16-35 and I think you are done.
How wide you you want/need?
If you want wider, maybe the Sigma 12-24.
Personally, I prefer primes for the ability to mix and match and smaller size, but thats me.
The first picture was adjusted in photoshop. At first, I didn't know the difference of shooting a picture in jpeg and raw. So, I played with the settings. It's a messed up.
Now I am learning to know the beauty of shooting in camera raw and at the same time to lessen photo adjustments in photoshop. Here's another sample again. I took this last night outside my neighbourhood:

You should go for Sunrise or Sunset shoot at Lakeside Garden. It will be nice..
Sony 50 F1.8, Sigma 50-150 F2.8II, Minolta 35-70 f4, Tamron 10-24 F3.5-4.5Di-II, Minolta 70-210 f4
Sunrise or sunset is quite a must, pls read up abit on "long exposure" or "night photography". Who knows u mite like it, o ya btw please bring an umbralla along, as last sat when I was about to leave Chn garden bout 7am as sun's up,it started pouring heavily, there were 4 photographers shooting when I left, hope their gears r alrite
TS, make sure your pictures are not tilted for a start.
Then read up on composition. Here is a good start

I didn't bring a tripod. Is there anyway that I can estimate it that the shot will be in a horizon. Can I fix this using the lens correction editing software (shot in RAW)?
I took this photo with my 24-70mm f2.8. I am trying out soon the 17-40mm. Still exploring more into photography. It is still heavy to carry a tripod. Will try to bring a tripod next time to avoid blur images.

Your are doing fine in the landscape photographic. For landscape photographic sometime we need some foreground to make the background landscape more interesting, also with good photo composition will help. The following articles might help:
Composition - Maximizing Perspective and Depth in your Photography
Photographic Composition Guidelines
Canon 5D II, 20-35 f/2.8L, 28-80 f/2.8L, 70-200 f/4L IS, 100-300 f/5.6L, 100 f/2.8 Macro
Your world really a bit slanted. I think the tripod will help even if you are using a faster shutter speed during daytime, so you can slowly align properly. Otherwise, you could get a hotshoe bubble level and learn to align the bubble in the middle, that could help. Some cameras have in camera level, not too sure if 6D has it. Those, while not totally accurate, can help to reduce the tilt.
