How to Untill Soil in Stardew Valley

Make it smoother again

During your Stardew Valley early game, you’re probably not entirely sure of where each of the components of your farm should be, such as your tilled soil. If you want to change your crops’ locations and start growing them somewhere else, it might be good to un-till that now-unused soil.

How to Turn Tilled Soil Back to Normal in Stardew Valley

To un-till your soil, you only need to use your pickaxe over the tilled soil. It will immediately return to normal and you can do whichever you want with that free tile you just got back. If you happened to store your pickaxe since you usually don’t use it as much for the farm, just pay a quick visit to your chest and bring it back to do the deed.

You can do it with any pickaxe at no cost, and there are no downsides to repeatedly tilling and un-tilling a given tile. Crops and other seeds will grow as normal as if nothing has happened, so you’re free to be undecisive on where you want them to be.

Another easy method is to visit Robin and ask her to move your buildings. You can move anything (from a Coop or a Silo) over the tilled soil tiles, then move it out immediately. All tiles will become untitled instantly, making it one of the most efficient methods to un-till your farm without having to spend your precious energy/time.

If you ever feel like you screwed up, it’s easy to go back and undo what you just did, so there are basically no drawbacks. But planning ahead of time is one of the most important aspects for min-maxing in Stardew Valley, so do it as often as you can. The newest 1.6 update makes it even more important as you now have a lot of new stuff to consider doing.
