Backyard Beautification is the eighth Live Event in The Sims FreePlay during the Home Makeover Update in March/April 2018. Like the previous live events, it unlocks new items and a designer backyard.

When the timer for the 9 days ends, there will be a 2 day period afterwards to purchase any of the remaining prizes. You will not be able to collect anymore arts and crafts resources or constructor coins. Once the timer for that period ends, the resources will convert into Simoleons.

Tutorial

The tutorial is the same for all live events:

  • Place a craft station
  • Craft candles
  • Restock a station
  • Buy the first prize
  • Use the spin flower
  • Check daily goals
  • Collect bonuses
  • Continue collecting items

Notes:

  • the goal for restocking lasts 10 seconds. When a station requires restocking during the event, it will take 2 hours 30 minutes.
  • the 'buy the x pack' (shown below in the image 'Buy the flower power pack') goal will change according to the specific event.

Coin flower patch

Coin flower patch
The coin flower patch (shown right) is used to earn Constructor Coins. Constructor coins (CC for short) are the fifth required resource alongside the craft resources to progress along the bar and earn the prizes. During the tutorial (shown above) the first spin from the patch is free; after that you can either spend 450 candles or 25 SPs to earn constructor coins. Each Live Event has the same garden patch and uses the same resource (with the exception of 'the Prince and the Pocket Sized Princess event', the patch was purple and required 450 daisies to use).
