A scarecrow garden is the smallest available building that a player can use to claim land. It has an 8x8 footprint and a decor limit of 50 items. Returned via mail if removed. Return will be delayed 22 hours if the removal is due to unpaid taxes. Can't be sold once built.

Minimum taxes per week are 5 Tax Certificates (increases with number of buildings owned on the server), thus the security deposit to place the garden is 10 Tax Certificates.
