5. Rock Garden
Do you love the basic look of a rock garden? Create your own with a mixture of rocks and custom rock pathways. This one is a little hard to achieve if you want in-game rocks to appear in certain places on your island. It involves covering your whole island except where you want the rocks to appear. It takes a lot of time investment, but it’s so worth it for a unique rock garden.

2. Fairy Ring Garden
Not every garden idea for Animal Crossing has to look so manicured and professionally done. You can turn a rural area of your island into a fairy ring, complete with mushrooms and stumps. Pine stumps work best with this due to their darker hue. Feel free to experiment with the type of bush you use, holly blooms in the winter for a nice effect.
