Landscaping Achievements

Seren Morgan-Roberts


This page offers a breakdown of all the Nook Miles Achievements relating to landscaping, including planting flowers, trees and shrubs, and selling weeds.

Greedy Weeder

You will likely unlock two greedy weeder achievements just from clearing your island of all its weeds for the first time and then selling them. After that, you will only get one or two weeds on your island per day, so if you’re looking to complete all Greedy Weeder achievements, you should weed mystery islands that you visit. Then, you need to sell those weeds to Timmy and Tommy to complete the task.

Fruit Roots

The Fruit Roots awards work differently to the other achievements. This is because the order in which you plant your first new fruit tree is different depending on which fruit you find first. The nook miles will increase with each new fruit you plant so it starts at 100, then 200, 300, 500 and then 700 Nook Miles for when you have all 6 fruit plants.

To find new fruit, you should interact with other players and trade fruit types with them. You can also find new fruit on mystery islands!

Task Unlocked Titles

Plant an Orange tree Total Freshman
Plant a Pear tree Unpearable Pear
