How to the Positive Aspects of Feng Shui to Your Garden

Integrating feng shui design into your yard will help circulate its energy into your home and your life.

Do not worry if your garden is considered too small for feng shui design, as size is relatively unimportant. It is great to have a huge space to work with, but do not worry if the area is small since you can always introduce feng shui design.

Whether you are bringing feng shui design to your home or garden, the methods are the same. The first task is to understand the bagua, or energy map, of your home, as your garden’s bagua will be an extension of that.

There are five elements in feng shui theory, and you should know how to use each of them to intensify 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. A Zen garden with some nice natural rocks is perfect for that spot, as the rocks represent the Earth element.

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