The Best Way to Incorporate the Positive Aspects of Feng Shui to Your Yard

su2025_2__17580.jpg Incorporating feng shui design into your yard will help spread its energy into your home and your life.

Size is not the main consideration when incorporating feng shui design to your garden. It is terrific to have a huge space to work with, but do not worry if the area is small since you can still introduce feng shui design.

The same tools you employ to introduce feng shui design into your home can be used in the garden. The initial task is to know the bagua, or energy map, of your home, as your garden’s bagua will be an extension of that.

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

The Earth element, for example, should be integrated in the northeast part of your garden which is linked to the personal growth and self-cultivation energy in feng shui design. This could be the optimal spot to put a meditative Zen garden with some beautiful stones because these represent the Earth element in feng shui.

A water element is a perfect addition to the following feng shui areas: Southeast (money & abundance), East (health & family), and North (career & path in life).

Selecting Wind Bells and Wind Chimes for Your Garden

In order to avoid possible friction in design styles, choose wind chimes which are simple in appearance. This way they will mix in perfectly anywhere they are installed. When choosing wind chimes, remember that their sound is vastly more important than their look. In fact, many of the more decorative types of wind chimes are not made in such a way that allows for the same pristine sound quality as those of a simple aluminum design. When creating your wind chime garden, consider them at different heights. For example, place your wind chimes on a patio, in a smaller tree line and among flowers. The blowing breeze will produce a sound that will emanate around your entire garden. Installing wind chimes in your eyeline so you can appreciate the sunrise and sundown will allow you to take pleasure in their visual aspects. Aluminum wind chime gardens fit in well with flowing water (such as waterfalls or birdbaths), stone decors and evergreens.
