Recommended minimal amount of free space to keep?

So, LVM is cool, having different partitions for different stuff is
cool, and of course Ext4 is cool and *reliable*.
So, we create some logical partitions and put ext4 on them,
reserving LVM space for growing those partitions or even making new ones
The thing is, I would like to keep every filesystem as small as it
can be, but without degrading the performance too much.
I guess that having a filesystem 99% full will create too much
fragmentation and many other issues, but having them only 30% full seems
like a waste.
Currently I try to keep them at 70% full utilization but I have not
based that on anything just guess.
So, what % hysteresis do you recommend? For example, when they get
70% full then grow them so that they get 50% full? Other values?
Thanks for the hints!
Good day everyone.
