Ways to Include the Positive Aspects of Feng Shui to Your Yard

When applied to your yard, feng shui design will introduce its healthful energy into your home as well.

Size is not the primary factor when incorporating feng shui design to your yard. Of course, a huge area is ideal if you have it, but rest assured that feng shui works just as well in smaller areas as well.

The same tools you employ to incorporate feng shui design into your home can be used in the garden. The initial step is to figure out the bagua, or energy map, of your home, as your garden’s bagua will be an extension of that. 115446-3702__90840.jpg

In order to make the most of feng shui, it is important to start by learning how to bolster 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 essential to integrate it. The ideal addition to the northeast corner of your yard might be a tranquil Zen garden decorated with natural stone, as they represent the Earth element in feng shui.

Give some thought to introducing a water feature into these feng shui areas: East (health & family), North (career & path in life), or Southeast (money and abundance).
