Surface Packets are tools used to change the surface of your garden.
Surface packets will not run out of seeds or material to cover the surface of the garden. A surface packet cannot be applied to cracked soil, water, or mud. The cursor can be resized to cover a smaller area to make thinner lines of a surface. There is a separate surface packet for each surface type that can be placed in the garden, excluding soil which is made by removing the surface using one of the existing surface packets or using the Shovel, and Water which can only be made using a shovel with the Pond Head or stronger.
There are two or four surface packets depending on the game. The Grass Seed Packet and Long Grass Seed Packet are in all games, while the Sand and Snow seed packets are only in Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise
Surface packets are acquired thoughout the course of gameplay or purchased from Lottie. Sand and Snow packets are acquired by capturing a piñata from the Dessert Desert or Piñarctic then transferring them to your garden respectively.
