Size is not the primary factor when adding feng shui design to your yard. A huge area is great for those lucky enough to have it, but a smaller area can still be useful in feng shui design.

Feng shui tools are identical whether you are working in your garden or your residence. In order to learn the energy map, or bagua, of your garden, you will first want to know your home’s bagua.

Before getting underway, make sure you comprehend the five elements of feng shui so that you can maximize their energy.

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 incorporate it. A Zen garden with some lovely natural rocks is perfect for that spot, as the rocks represent the Earth element.

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

The Stupendous Santa Maria in Cosmedin Water Fountain in Rome

Archaeologists and restorers alike have stumbled upon a treasure trove of heathen and Christian relics on the site of Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome. The celebrated marble sculpture known as the Bocca della Verità (Mouth of Truth) is located in the portico of the basilica nearby. Built in 1719, the Santa Maria in Cosmedin fountain was relatively unknown and situated far from sight making it difficult to visit. For the most part, visitors stayed away from the area because it was a drab and desolate part of the city. In order to refurbish the square outside the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, Pope Clement XI commissioned an Italian architect by the name of Carlo Bizzaccheri to put up a water fountain for the area. Work on the church's infrastructure started on on August 11, 1717. The blessing of the first rock to be placed in the foundation was followed by medals being tossed in showing the images of the Blessed Virgin, for whom the church is named, and St. John the Baptist, the patron saint of water.
