I too would like more variety in how to lay out the gardens and the type of flowers/trees. And please, LESS emphasis on fountains! I swear, if I have to build one more fountain I might go on a fountain demolition spree reminiscent of Henry the VIII's Dissolution of the monasteries The part of the garden I like best so far is where the tree house, dog house and little river are. The other parts so far are way to stately to feel like a real garden. I'm now at the part with the 5 big rocks and that mysterious wall (which I shall not spoil for those not yet there).

The idea of a hunt for missing tools seems nice too!

And yes, let us spend coins for special (holiday) decorations to put in the garden.
