It depends, so here are some scenerios:

If there are several cars parked in a private driveway and you back-up or start speeding out of the driveway and hit another car then you are responsible for hitting the other car.

If you were speeding on a road and turned a curve and ended up on someone's property you are responsible for the damage done on their property and that includes ripping up gardens, grass, crashing into any part of that home or uprooting trees.

If you were on private property and someone else hit you causing you to damage that property then it would be the other person that is responsible.
