View Full Version : Remodling!

Hey guys I was wondering if you could help me remodel my gardens, since I took a break from WC hunting and got to 108. Ok so I pimped out my super water garden and I made it similar to the WCF's Oasis garden. Ok so I have a circle with a swanana fountain in the middle, and surrounding that is a monkeynut trees, and moon on a stick lights interlocking, I also have a few more of those but not in a circle, and it looks really cool It also has some stone paving pathways. Ok so I still need the rest of my gardens to be remodeled and I need ideas. My first garden has lots of roarios, and chewnicorns but I can't think of anything cool to put in it. My second is my bird garden so I filled it with oak trees, but it still needs a little work. My lake garden is nothing special with just water gardens but it still doesn't look so nice. I was thinking about adding some fountains. My fifth garden is half with long grass and half short grass and contains moozipans, zumbugs, doenuts, and goobaas (plus their houses). I coudn't think of anything to make it look cool though. My next is just for galagoogoo WC hunting, and I think my last was the temporary home for lucky (the WC) but now I have no ideas for it except maybe I'll make it japenese like Kawigi...so any help would be greatly appreciated :D

I'm just going to copy/paste my usual tips if you don't mind
- Don't try to cram too many pinatas in your garden, you end up selling everything and your garden looks awfull
- Use dirt paths between pinata houses and such, it can make your garden look well organised
- Try putting alot of plants/trees, to make your garden look more natural (don't put them on the dirt paths, but next to them)
-Tile, fence, and decorations should used sparingly, because they take up alot of space in your garden
- Try to keep a theme in your garden (ex: Jungle, lake, farm, etc.)

thanks Zap and I finished the Japanese garden. I guess I just need some more themes...?

Pfff, Y even worry about what your garden looks like? all of mine look like crap. I guess I'll make a good garden of Roarios, Chewnicorns and Eaglairs after that damn WC is found.
I find that fully grown Gem Trees (pain in the butt) around a garden looks amazing.

I used newtgat in the Japanese garden, and I used Asian in the ocean garden, I think I will make a new garden for a farm :p

The Kittyfloss house has a Asian, or japanese type look to it. One of the best IMO.
I find that you can really pull a garden to gether with the right items. There are bails of hay, lanterns, wind chimes, pots, sundils, tons of stuff that look great in the right garden.
I reasently re-desined the Wild Card Junk Yard with more junk, messy dirt/grass/long grass ground and some trees and now it really looks like a junk yard and has a real unique look to it. You just need to try new things. Place your items in lots of differant spots to see how it looks. If you don't like the spot you put your Oak tree in, just ship it to yourself and try somewhere else.

thanks for the help guys, oh and I just made, and finished my farm garden. It has a picket fenced off area for my 3 rashberries and their house, this area has no grass and some water so it looks like a big pen :p. Then next to that I have a short grass, area picket fence on the rashberry side, and hedge on the moozipan side. This contains 4 clukles and 2 of their houses (also has a small water source). Next to that I have an area with some long grass, and hedges were my moozipans reside (no house) but it is more open and no gate (all others have a double oak gate) so my moozipans roam free. In front of them all I have some apple trees (to make it look nice), 2 helper houses (as barns) who house my 2 gatherlings (as farmers), and in between the helper houses is a fenced off Barkbark and his dog house (as a guard dog). Maybe I can post pics of all of them soon. Also I might add goobaas, haystacks, and milking/sheering sheds. Upcoming: I will try to fix up my lake garden, but I still can't think of a theme for my first garden:cry:!!

you should do a kind of ruined garden...like if you can get junk put that in there with haphazard statues and fountains, little grass, hard dirt if you saved any, and random puddles everywhere. i might actaully do that to one of my gardens...

I'm trying to build a farm garden, but it won't let me use as much fencing as I want. :mad:
04-15-2007, 08:03 PM
yeah I know thats a problem you have to try and limit it...actually pics coming tomorrow. ;)

Yeah, figuring out how to best use the fencing is definitely going to be a challenge in a farm garden (which I might have one of soon, too. There are a lot of items at Costalot's which only seem like they'd work well in a farm-themed garden).
My favorite garden from a theme and design perspective is my bird garden. Unfortunately, it's also the one I have to be the most careful to maintain (I just screwed something up in it when I was visiting the other day), and one you couldn't do without building it from the bottom up.
The garden is called "Avian Wasteland", and it's just what it sounds like it would be - Big trees, big birds, dry mud. There's a moat around it (mostly because the edges usually have soil and grass in the beginning) with a gated, ornamental "bridge" one one side, constituting the only real entrance for land-rovers. I should note that the dry mud can go all the way up to the water with no soil around the moat. In the center is a soil area with two oak trees (across from each other), two fir trees (also across from each other), and a gem tree and a banana tree, with a captain's cutlass and a bunch of flowers in the middle. On the ground around this area are the logs you can buy from costalot. The corner that has the thickest section of the moat is where my mine was in that garden, and it now has a small island with some ornamental stones and an Eaglair house on it. The whole garden has exactly zero grass anywhere, and it's my most spectacular garden in my own opinion. It also has one of probably every non-aquatic bird species in the game except for cluckles, and a fine gold dragonache. Many of the birds are variants (I'd just keep my favorite variant, like the gold buzzenge for instance), and I also have one of each variant of Eaglair and about half a dozen regular-colored Eaglairs.
The thing you have to be careful about when working on this kind of garden is being careful to not screw up your mud. Those crates you get from pinata central make soil under them wherever you put them (but crates from the post office don't). Building houses or other buildings will also soil-ify a circle around them. But the party crates are what usually screw me up (the spot where I put my first pinata central crate has a monkeynut tree to make it look on purpose).

wow Kawigi that sounds cool, can you post pics of it? I have a similar garden except I have one spot with banana trees, bonboons, bonboon house, parrybo house, and parrybos (as a tropical island part of the garden), then I have oak trees scattered around, and eaglair, buzzenge, candary, sparrowmint, and crowla pinatas and houses. It looks Ok but I may take out the grass like you :p Also my farm garden looks really good now so I can't wait to post pics :p
