Turfs (2)

All turfs in order of priority. Turfs with higher priority will partly cover other turfs.

The ground. You step on it.


Turfs are floor and ground tile items. They can be dug up with a Pitchfork and used for decoration or fuel. Turfs can fuel all structures except the Night Light. Turfs cannot be used to fertilize plants.

Turfs generally don't affect Mobs except:

  • Some birds only land on certain turfs and certain seasons.
  • BFB cannot land on rainforest turfs because they have a canopy.
  • Spider nests create a special turf called Sticky Webbing, which slows the player and some Mobs down.

Roads and Trails are not turfs and cannot be moved.

Surface TurfsEdit

Don't Starve, Don't Starve Together, and Reign of Giants have almost the same surface and cave turfs.

Marsh 1

One Marsh Turf surrounded by eight Sandy Turfs. The Sandy Turf is dominant, so the Marsh Turf is smaller.

Marsh 8

One Sandy Turf surrounded by eight Marsh Turfs. Again, the Sandy Turf is dominant and larger, despite there being only one.

Turfs with higher priority or "dominance" will partly cover other turfs. For example, a Carpeted Flooring turf will always partly cover a Checkerboard Flooring turf when they are next to each other. Turf priority is purely aesthetic.

The following list starts with the highest priority turf, going to the lowest priority turf.
