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.


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 (June 19, 2018) or later.
