10 Great Terraforming & Design Tips For Natural Island In Animal Crossing New Horizons

1. Terraform First - Natural terraforming gives you a good base to work from. Use rivers, waterfalls, and cliffs to add visual interest. Also, try not to use sharp edges or straight lines for a more natural look

2. Planning - Lay paths down first, then dig holes or put down custom designs in spots where you want to put trees so you can test your layouts out before you do all the work of planting. Remember to leave space for Animal Crossing items and little areas.

3. Paths - Use the dark dirt path then lay down different designs such as leaves, mushrooms, or flowers to make it more rural and cottagecore. Also, you can drop flowers & place piles of leaves on the path too. 

4. Waterfalls - Make multi-level narrow river waterfalls (usually 1 or 2 grid spaces). At each level have them connect until they reach the bottom where you can make a beautiful lake and around cliff edges. 

5. Mix Tree Types - Mix different kinds of trees to create texture. The type of trees and the proportion of different trees creates different effects. Even if you use mostly one kind of tree, mix in other types

6. Freeze Trees - Use trees of different sizes for more interest. To freeze a tree at any stage of growth, just plant a piece of fruit directly adjacent to the tree at whatever size you want to freeze it at. Note: Planting fruit (not a coconut) in any of the adjacent spaces will freeze the current growth stage.

7. Plants - Adding flowers and shrubs after trees. Pick a cohesive color palette and mix of different flower types. You can also use weeds to create a wild, overgrown look. 

8. Farm - Use a design code for farm dirt or just use a dirt path then place your ACNH furniture and items such as anthurium plants, cacao trees, mushroom stools and watermelon beach balls to be your plants.

9. Fill Space - Add items for visual interest. From statues, crickets, barrels, to garden rocks, mushrooms, be creative and group items together for nice vignettes. You also can use stumps to add more.

10. Rural Interior - In the house design, the original wooden style furniture & floor (such as Log series, stone items, natural wood furniture), and the wallpaper with plant patterns (Forest Wall, Bamboo-grove Wall, Chic Wall, Ivy Wall, Mangrove Wall etc.) are easy to help you get a natural and cottagecore room.
