In the end, there is no wrong or right way to build your garden in Sprout, but you can still make things as efficient as possible, and we will show you how in our Sprout: Idle Garden cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!

Make sure your gardeners can get to the flowers!

The one thing that separates Sprout: Idle Garden from other idle games is that you can actually change the path of efficiency for your coin earning activities. Your gardeners will travel down paths laid out for them to collect flowers, and they will go down a path until they hit a dead end, at which they will turn around and loop back.

You can make paths so that gardeners come across multiple flowers. There are a lot of ways to improve efficiency, so try out all sorts of layouts!

Zoom in for more info!

You can pinch the screen to zoom in and out and rotate the camera freely. This will come in handy whenever you feel like redecorating or moving old houses or pots around. Here is something that the game does not tell you though: if you zoom in close enough to a pot, you can see the flower that is planted in it and its current level.

This saves you a lot of time, as you do not have to manually touch each pot to get info on the flower inside.

Complete your goals!

Your current goal can be accessed at any time by tapping the exclamation mark at the top right corner of the screen. You will only have one goal at a time, and it will lead you down the general progression path. If you are ever unsure of what to do next, please take a look at your goal and the path will become clear!

Place lots of decorations!

If you play Sprout: Idle Garden mostly away from the game, then you are going to want to invest in a lot of decorations. Decorations, like the Pointy Bush, will increase the idle value of all flowers, and they stack!

So, you can place down as many as you like and your idle value will continue to increase. This is important because your flowers actually do not make that much when you are away from the game!

Place lots of Coffee Stations!

Upon reaching level 7, you will unlock the Coffee Station. This thing takes up the same amount of space as a pot, but when gardeners pass by it they will take a sip. Feeling the rush of caffeine, gardeners will temporarily speed up, effectively doubling productivity speed.

Try to place a coffee station on your gardeners’ main route to ensure that they are always getting the energy boost they need.
