We're too scared to find out…

Sometimes this guide will refer to achieving a perfect town, for example to get the golden watering can. This page will outline what you need to do in order to get perfect town status. To check the status of your town, speak to Isabelle in the Town Hall.

Once you get perfect town status, if you speak to Isabelle you will be able to renovate the Town Hall exterior and the clock.

Perfect Town criteria

  • Plant trees (110-200) and flowers (at least 75)
  • Remove all weeds. Note that while dandelions and clovers are weeds, they do not affect your town’s rating
  • Make sure there are no discarded items in your town
  • Water all your flowers and stop them from wilting
  • Build at least ten Public Works in your town, not including those in Main Street
