Update: This mod is NOT compatible with the February patch! It needs an update, so bear with me.
- Sims 4 Version Required:
Hello! Today I bring you a Gardener mod, which allows Sims to hire a Gardener to tend to their garden. This even works while the Sim is away from their home lot (even during active careers)!
You can use the phone to hire a gardener, under "hire a service". The gardener will then come to your home lot, and tend the garden. They will not harvest or evolve plants for you, you need your Sims to do that. But this does work with scumbumbo's gardening mods over at Modthesims.info.
The gardener will wear randomized clothing, I could not get them to wear a specific outfit for that. You can customize their outfits in CAS if you'd like, by using MC Command Center over at Modthesims.info by Deaderpool.
The gardener works pretty well, and will get your garden looking great! However, they still need to use the bathroom or eat sometimes, so they will take care of their own motives, in addition to caring for your garden.
If you Sim decides to take care of the plants while the gardener is there, the gardener will leave and not take care of the plants. You also need to rehire the gardener every week, if you decide to do a recurring gardener service. If you do a one time gardener service, then they will need to be rehired every day.
The gardener service costs $90 with an additional $30/hour. If they are there all day, it can cost around $200-$300 total, which is easy money for rich Sims. If your Sims are poor, it can really make a dent in their funds, so make sure you keep an eye on it!
This mod works with all EPs. GPs and SPs, and should work with just the base game as well. You need to be fully patched to 1.14 for this mod to work. It may work it 1.13, but it was built on 1.14, so I'd update your game if you run into any issues.
Any questions, feel free to ask me! <3
Translations: This mod can be updated to take translations! I have included a few language translations, but there are a few still missing. Feel free to send me the translations for your language based off of the link in this post, and let me know what language it is you are translating it to.

I'd like to thank the original creator of this mod who is no longer modding for the Sims 4 as well! Their website is down so I cannot link to them, but I wanted to make a note of this since they inspired this mod.
