Feng Shui in the garden
Simple steps for balancing the harmony of flora &
fauna and energising your surrounding environment.
The garden is the Yin component of your property and the
house is the Yang.
Curved pathways & flowerbeds will enhance the positive
Chi flow and will counterpoint and balance the straight lines
of a house. Straight edged pavers laid in a curved or herringbone
pattern will break up straight lines and encourage Chi.
To extend the principal of balance, add contrasting 'textures',
such as counterpointing the smooth texture of water with the
roughness of rocks.
The contrast of water & rocks also represent the balance
of movement (water) and stillness (rocks) and the harmony
of humans with nature.
To add tranquility to a corner of your garden, a large rock,
pergola or pagoda can be placed in the appropriate spot.
It's ideal Feng Shui for the boundaries of a property to
be marked by irregularly shaped hedges, curved walls and flower
beds, rather than high, straight fences.
The guiding principal behind applying Feng Shui to your garden
is to ensure that it's balanced within itself in all areas
and then balances with the home located within it. The components
of the garden such as pathways, garden beds and retaining
walls all have a role in balancing Feng Shui.
