[FIXED] Can't hire a gardener

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get together, dine out, cats and dogs, get to work, outdoor retreat, and parenthood
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Go to hire services 2. Go to hire a gardener 3. Option is grayed out (Happened after patch)
What happens when the bug occurs? I tell my sim to hire a service, I hover over both gardener options, but the button is grayed out, and says I should have a garden, even though I do.
What do you expect to see? The option not grayed out
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I took out my cc, still didn't work. I repaired my game, still didn't work.

I tried almost everything, all I can say is, I feel like this is an EA problem because this never happened until after the patch for seasons.

Re: Hiring a Gardener

Hero

You can now hire a gardener if you have plants on your lot for your gardener to garden, regardless of your garden’s gardening needs.
  • Previously, if your garden was not in need, you were being incorrectly informed that you didn’t have a garden.


Fixed in Patch 1.48.90

 

If you still have any issues hiring a gardener, please create a new thread.

I removed my entire mods folder and it still did not work. Sorry if I didn't specify earlier.

Does this still happen if you try an entirely new save?

I think Rosemow has confirmed this bug at the forum.

I can see that in my game too. I only have a very small garden. Funny thing is, when I first planted something, I had to option on the plant. Now it's gone.

I will add this.

I've just noticed it too since the patch in one save.  I first played in a save that already had a gardener and that gardener is still coming, but I started a new save and loaded a pre existing family from my library and their house.  I've played it for 3.5 sim days and I don't have the option to hire a gardener as it says I don't have a garden and I also noticed that the garden hasn't needed watering or weeding at all (and on a different note my sim has been able to harvest the UFO plant 3 times and that used to take a long time between harvests, I'm wondering if this is planned?). FYI, I have all the packs (except Seasons Standard smile ), no mods (I removed MCC before updating, then repaired my game and cleared my cache), and never any cc. 

 

Best regards,

Jennifer

I have this too, no CC, planted a new, after the patch garden, no previous gardener and it's greyed out. I'll keep an eye on this thread!

 

Edit-I've cleaned cache and repaired too.

Re: can't hire a gardener

Further to my earlier post with the save that couldn’t hire a gardener, I added a ‘greenhouse’ to the lot and moved most of the plants into planters and put them inside the greenhouse. The option to hire a gardener still wasn’t there, however I then exited my game. I went in again today after clearing my game cache and the option to hire the gardener on the phone was now available. I didn’t have time to play so I’ve not been able to check if the plants develop weeds or need watering (they hadn’t for the 3.5 sim days I’d been playing), so I’m not sure if that part is resolved. 

 

Thanks and regards,

Jennifer
