350 Comments / replies (Who?) - 2 Feedback Posts, 23 Thanks Posts
BUGFIX July 8, 2018 - Version 7 had several bugs which caused issues for weeding and tending gardens that used planters. These bugs should now be fixed in version 7b.

Updated June 21, 2018 - Version 7 should be compatible with the latest game patches as of the June 19, 2018 patch.

Older versions have been removed and are no longer supported.

Description

This is a mod for The Sims 4 to speed up the simple gardening tasks, such as weeding and watering. The more complex tasks, such as planting and harvesting are not affected. Tasks will take about one-third as long with this mod in place.

The mod also triples the distance a sim will consider walking between plants to perform these tasks.

XML Mod Installation Instructions

Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.

This mod may cause conflicts with any other mod which change gardening tasks. Due to the wide variety of mods and sources for them, it is unlikely I will be able to help you with such a conflict. If there is a conflict, either one or both mods may fail to work properly, your game may crash, frogs may rain down from the sky...

Version 7 of the mod should be compatible with games patched to version 1.44.77.1020 (June 19, 2018) or later.

I was just hoping someone would make this mod this morning my sims have a small garden and it would take hours for them to take care of it.

You only live once make the most of it..:)

Very nice! Was kind of expecting that gardening would be less life-consuming in TS4 than in TS3, but nope This will definitely help.

Thank you a thousand times over. All my families have gardens and, up to now, it has been a real chore for them (and me).

Last night my SIm was working her garden - there were two other family members helping her with the watering and weeding. It was taking most of the SIM day. I ended up deleting a lot of the garden to cut the time being spent. I was wishing there was a way to make them not take so long watering and weeding. Thank you very much - you granted my wish!

Finally! Ah thank God! I love having tiny gardens in all my houses - 3 to 5 plants in general; but even with that few it's unmanageable! I let them die since it was a nightmare Now I can haz my gardens Thank youuuuu!
Now all I'm missing is tiny fences, we had so many lovely CC ones in Sims 3, and those in Sims 4 are only... Two. 'Tis sad.

Might I suggest that instead of making it faster, that you perform the action once per plot and it affects all plants? I mean you weed and water a plot, not one plant in the plot .

I didn't like gardening much in sims 3 and now 4 because of how long it took the sims to complete. Thanks for working on this mod (:
