Ways Feng Shui Turn Your Yard into a Haven

Feel the health benefits of feng shui by incorporating its design elements into your yard. 50721md__36443.jpg

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

The same tools you employ to incorporate feng shui design into your home can be used in the garden. The first part is to figure out the bagua, or energy map, of your home, as your garden’s bagua will be an extension of that.

It is also essential to know the five elements in the theory of feng shui and how best to use each one to make the most of its 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 essential to use it. Since rocks epitomize the Earth element in feng shui, you might give some thought to putting some into a serene Zen garden in the northeast corner of your yard.

Anyone thinking about incorporating a water element into their garden should place it in one of these feng shui areas: North (career & path in life), Southeast (money and abundance), or East (health & family).

Choosing Wind Chimes for Your Backyard

Choose basic wind chimes in order to eliminate possible clashes in decor styles. This way they will mix in perfectly anywhere they are placed. When choosing wind chimes, remember that their sound is vastly more important than their appearance. As a matter of fact, the more decorative varieties of wind chimes are not fabricated so as to yield the same clean audio quality as those made of aluminum. You can put your chimes at differing heights when creating your wind chime garden. Wind chimes, for instance, can be set up in a wide variety of spots including a sundeck, in a small line of trees, as well as among flowers. The sound produced every time the wind blows will ring throughout your property. Installing wind chimes in your eyeline so you can appreciate the sunrise and sunset will allow you to enjoy their aesthetic aspects. Aluminum wind chime gardens fit very well with rock configurations, water features (such as a waterfall or a birdbath) and surrounding evergreens.
