Integrate the Energy of Feng Shui into Your Yard

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

When introducing feng shui design into your yard, even a very small space works. If you have a lush, beautiful one, that is great, but even a small area works well with feng shui design.

Whether you are introducing feng shui design to your home or garden, the approaches are the same. In order to learn the energy map, or bagua, of your garden, you will first need to understand your home’s bagua. 6044_6603__82011.jpg

In order to make the most of feng shui, it is vital to start by learning how to strengthen each of its five elements.

The northeast corner of your garden, for instance, connects to personal growth and self-cultivation energy, and Earth is the feng shui element that is important to integrate it. Since rocks epitomize the Earth element in feng shui, you might consider putting some into a peaceful Zen garden in the northeast corner of your yard.

Southeast (money and abundance), East (health & family), and North (career & path in life) are feng shui areas perfect for a water feature.

Choosing the Perfect Wind Bells and Windchimes for Your Taste

Go for wind chimes which are basic in design in order to prevent any disparity in decor designs. It is important to position them anywhere they blend in effortlessly.

Choose wind chimes that produce a beautiful sound and do not get stuck solely on their visual appeal. As a matter of fact, the much ornamental varieties of wind chimes are not designed so as to produce the same pristine audio quality as those crafted of aluminum. You can place your chimes at differing heights when designing your wind chime garden. For instance, setting up your wind chimes on a sundeck, in a small line of trees, or among flowers can create a beautiful outdoor environment. The blowing breeze will produce a sound that will emanate throughout your entire garden. If the aesthetic side to your wind chimes is important to you, be sure to display them in your line of vision. so you can appreciate the reflection of the rising and setting of the sun. Wind chime gardens designed of aluminum fit well with stone decor, coursing water (including a waterfall or a birdbath) and evergreens.
