Going big with flowers:

The Nintendo developed title also has a massive library of flowers for players to choose for their Island. With different colors and unique shapes, the flora can massively uplift them. Players can create a huge field of these flowers, or create small pockets that look pristine.

Designing around a pathway:

To complement a good garden, players can try designing a garden around a pathway. It’s nice to use a basic and natural walkway that will serve as a base with flowers and trees surrounding it. Fans can also add other items such as benches, lights and many more to improve its looks.
