Dead Island 2 Landscaper’s Key location

Greenthumb Eddie will drop the Landscaper’s Key once you’ve killed him. This opens Eddie’s Toolbox, which is a safe you can find on a truck behind the Emma Jaunt safehouse. It’s marked on your map, so check there if you’re lost on where to go.

Even though the butcher is located near where the game starts, Greenthumb Eddie will not spawn until you reach the Santa Monica Pier and defeat Butcho the Clown in the 20th mission of the game called Boardwalking Dead. This is when Butcher special infected are introduced to the world, so make sure you play through the game to unlock Greenthumb Eddie.
