Here are some tips to help you pass levels in Gardenscapes. These are just general tips that should apply to most of the levels not just specific ones. Hopefully, they’ll help you if you keep finding yourself stuck on hard levels.
You Can Back Out Of Level
You can back out of levels if you haven’t made any moves yet. This is really useful since the levels are randomly generated each time. For example, if you open up a level and it’s a really bad loadout where you know that you’ll run out of moves really soon. You can back out of the level and come back for a hopefully better loadout.
If I’m not being super impatient sometimes I’ll just keep backing out of a level until I get a loadout that lets me make a bomb or better on the first move.
You Can Make Moves Into Empty Squares
I know that it’s super counter-intuitive to make moves into empty squares. But it’s true! as long as a square can potentially have something in it you can make a move into it. Sure it doesn’t work on lilypad levels. But if a square is empty because there is a chokepoint further up you can totally make a move into it.
Do Not Be Afraid To Spend $$$
The great thing about Gardenscapes is that the in-game currency is really easy to get. You can get it from passing levels, from the daily lottery, and for watching ads that are actually not very intrusive. So don’t be too stingy.
The best thing to spend on, in my opinion, is the extra 5 lives which is way more worth it than 5 extra moves. I like to keep a reserve of about 5,000 coins just in case, but you don’t have to.
That being said please don’t waste money on inconsequential things like a redecoration. You’ll just have to live with the consequences of your choices.
Try To Make Combinations Lower Down On The Map
If you can, especially on maps with firefly jars and flower beds. Unless you can definitely make a bomb or dynamite or barrel up above. It’s always better to make matches down below because there’s always a chance that you can snowball new matches with the incoming drops.
Use Up Your Lives Before Starting A New Day
Do you know that your lives get refilled when you tap the “start a new day” button? So it’s a waste if you had something like 3 lives left when you start a new day.
That’s all for the tips! I hope you found them useful and if you have any more tips to share Please leave a comment. And as always love yourself, and take care.
