Ways to Introduce the Benefits of Feng Shui to Your Garden

Introducing feng shui design into your yard will help spread its energy into your home and your life.

As far as the size of your garden goes, it is not extremely important when introducing feng shui design to it. A huge space is great for those fortunate enough to have it, but a more compact area can still be useful in feng shui design. p-602__34695.jpg

Whether you are adding feng shui design to your home or garden, the approaches are the same. In order to understand the energy map, or bagua, of your garden, you will first want to know your home’s bagua.

There are five elements in feng shui theory, and you should understand how to apply each of them to maximize the energy.

Feng shui design calls for the Earth element, for example, to be incorporated into the northeastern corner of your garden, as that area connects to self-cultivation and personal development energy. Since rocks symbolize the Earth element in feng shui, you might give some thought to putting some into a peaceful Zen garden in the northeast corner of your yard.

Think about incorporating a water feature into these feng shui areas: East (health & family), North (career & path in life), or Southeast (money and abundance).

Choosing Wind Chimes for Your Backyard

Basic wind chimes function better than more complex ones so as to not create imbalance in decor styles. The aim is to place them wherever they will fit and blend in effortlessly. Select wind chimes that produce a pleasant sound and do not get stuck solely on their appearance. As a matter of fact, the much attractive varieties of wind chimes are not designed so as to produce the same clean sound quality as those composed of aluminum.

You can place your chimes at varying heights when creating your wind chime garden. For instance, setting your wind chimes on a sundeck, in a small line of trees, or among flowers can create a beautiful outdoor environment. The sounds will deeply resonate across your garden whenever the wind blows. Installing wind chimes in your eyeline so you can enjoy the dawn and sunset will allow you to take pleasure in their aesthetic aspects. Aluminum wind chime gardens fit perfectly with rock configurations, water features (such as a waterfall or a birdbath) and surrounding evergreens.
