Why Add Wind Bells and Wind Chimes to Your Garden?

Choose basic wind chimes in order to stay away from likely clashes in decor styles. The main goal is for them to fit in effortlessly wherever they are positioned. When it comes to wind chimes, the tone is more significant than the look. Consider a simpler aluminum sort of wind chime over a more decorative set because these typically make a more beautiful sound quality. p-749__14336.jpg When creating your wind chime garden, chimes can be hung at various heights. For example, place a set of wind chimes up on a deck, one in a smaller tree line and another among your flowers. Each and every instant the breeze blows, the sound will intensely resonate across your yard. If the appearance of the wind chimes is important to you, contemplate hanging them in your eyeline where they will reflect the sun at dawn and sundown. Wind chime gardens designed of aluminum fit well with stone decor, flowing water (including a waterfall or a birdbath) and evergreens.

How Feng Shui Turn Your Garden into a Haven

Add feng shui design to the layout of your yard so it can bring energy into your household.

As far as the size of your yard goes, it is not extremely important when adding feng shui design to it. Of course, a big area is great if you have it, but rest assured that feng shui works just as well in smaller spaces as well.

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

There are five elements in feng shui theory, and you should know how to utilize each of them to maximize the energy.

The Earth element, for example, should be located in the northeast section of your garden which connects to the personal growth and self-cultivation energy in feng shui design. This could be the ideal spot to put a meditative Zen garden with some attractive stones because these represent the Earth element in feng shui.

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