August 2023 Skin: Elephant Hedge
As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into August with your desired Hedges! The skin for completing your July capture streak (and the corresponding badge), which is the Lion Garden Hedge shown below, will be awarded in early August. But, we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store for next month!
July Hedge Reminders
If you haven’t picked up a Hedge yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $6.
How to have a permanent Hedge on your account next year:
- Own at least 8 Hedges by the end of the year
- Each month, the price of a Hedge will decrease by $1.
- However, players can only purchase 1 Hedge every 28 days.
Also, don’t forget that Reseller Garden Hedges have arrived! These unique munzee types are only available for purchase from participating Munzee Resellers, so shop now!
August Hedge Details
What Hedge Skin can you look forward to earning in August? The Elephant Garden Hedge! Like the other hedges, the Elephant Garden Hedge is a temporary POB that will remain on the map as long as players with permanent Garden Hedges continue to use it.

As stated earlier, to earn this skin, you’ll need to complete next month’s (August’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in September, you can change the skin on the hedge to this one at any point — refer to our Help Guide article for the instructions!
You can find this gigantic garden at the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:
- POI Wildlife
- All Stages of Safari Bus Evolution
- Virtual Colors
- Bouncer Destinations except Scrap Star
Additionally, the Elephant Garden Hedge will scatter up to 1-3 NEW Elephant Head Flowers nearby when it is captured!

Like the other Hedge Flowers, these scatters will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Hedge owner’s account. This means that unlike Air Mystery Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These hedge scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.
As a reminder, Garden Hedges have 4 associated badge lines:
- Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up!
- Overall deploy badges — the more hedges you deploy, the merrier!
- Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned hedge!
- Overall capture badges — capture as many hedges as you can find!
While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Elephant Garden Hedge:
Don’t let August’s Hedge Skin stomp away!
