Vitalize Your Garden with the Help of Feng Shui

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

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

The same tools you employ to introduce feng shui design into your living space can be used in the garden. Your yard's bagua, or energy map, is an off-shoot of your home’s bagua, so it is important to determine your home’s first. brk-303-3__34127.jpg

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

The Earth element, for example, should be located in the northeast portion of your garden which connects to the personal growth and self-cultivation energy in feng shui design. Since rocks epitomize the Earth element in feng shui, you might consider putting some into a serene 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 ideal for a water feature.

Why Add Wind Chimes to Your Garden?

Basic wind chimes function better than more complex ones so as to not create imbalance in decor styles. The main goal is for them to fit in easily wherever they are positioned. And remember, the significance of sound is more significant than the look when it comes to wind chimes. As a matter of fact, the more decorative kinds of wind chimes are not fabricated so as to produce the same pristine audio quality as those crafted of aluminum. When creating your wind chime garden, chimes can be hung at different heights. One example is to spot your wind chimes on a terrace, another set in a small tree line and yet another around your flowers. Each and every time the wind blows, the tones will intensely resonate throughout your garden. Hanging 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 very well with stone configurations, water features (such as a waterfall or a birdbath) and surrounding evergreens.
