Mods: Faster Gardening Mod by Scumbumbo from Mod The Sims
This is a mod for The Sims 4 to speed up the simple gardening tasks, such as weeding and watering. The more complex tasks, such as planting and harvesting are not affected. Tasks will take about one-third as long with this mod in place.
The mod also triples the distance a sim will consider walking between plants to perform these tasks.

You will need to create an empty sub-folder in your Mods folder called unpackedmod. (Don’t put the package in here, you can keep this folder empty)
You will also need to edit your resource.cfg file in the Mod folder. Add a new line to the end with the following text:
