Raising Your Island Rating To 5 Stars

Golden Watering Can

"Your current island rating is 5 stars!"!!!

In order to get the Golden Watering Can recipe, you'll first need to raise your island to the maximum of 5 stars. It's fairly easy to get this rating up to 3 or 4 stars, but 5 will require you to really straighten out your entire island in a well-balanced way.

Key Points To Improve Island Rating
  • Get the max number of Villagers
  • Increase the number of Shops and upgrade them
  • Plant a certain amount of Flowers
  • Plant a certain amount of Trees (including fruit trees)
  • Add plenty of fences
  • Distribute furniture evenly across your entire island
  • Focus on aesthetics (no trash or weeds!)

The most important point here is that placement of furniture needs to well-balanced! This means you can't just place it all in the center of your island near your main facilities like you can to get a 4 star rating!

Items We Placed To Get A 5 Star Rating

DIY Furniture~70 pieces
Furniture (bought with Miles)20 pieces
Furniture (bought from Nook's Cranny)~65 pieces

You don’t need to max out your villagers. I got it with only 7 villagers
