If you do not have or want to use an axe, other alternatives exist for obtaining stones in the game. You can get new stones in Animal Crossing through Balloon presents, rare drops, and will grant you one stone.

Moreover, you can get one stone by fishing in any water body as a Junk item. The stone will appear with a small shadow size and flavor text stating, “Now it’s all mine-ral!”

If you suspect no more rocks on the island, you can go on mystery tours to other islands. The advantage of these tours is that these islands have at least three boulders you can strike to get more stones. This will yield more rocks, and your island will also spawn more rocks daily.

What happens if you bury a stone in Animal Crossing?

Burying a stone is among the fastest way of getting more stones. First, you require a 3×3 grid area around the rocks for the stones to spawn in. Ensure that you have cleared the area from weeds or other items that may prevent the stones from spawning. 

Next, go to one of the corner spaces around the rocks and, using a shovel, dig a hole to the right and your character’s current position. You can dig as many holes as possible, but only two holes are recommended. 

You can now start hitting the rock by pressing the ‘A’ button multiple times until all the goods are exhausted. Press ‘Y’ to bury these resources in the holes and fill them in. You should leave them there, and the resources will spawn in multiples overnight. That is the trick to creating a rock garden for your stones.
