Gardens tie us closely to Feng Shui because they are the easiest way to stay in touch with nature.
Enhancing Your Garden With Feng Shui
Start with my exclusive Feng Shui Garden Bagua Map, using it just as you would inside your home.
Starting from the entry to your garden, look around and use the map to think about how each area is working to support your life. (Read more here about How To Use The Feng Shui Bagua Map).
For example, what’s in the back left-hand corner, your Wealth & Abundance area?
After you’ve cleared it of things you don’t want or love, think about what you could add to activate Abundance: good lighting, strong vertical plantings, and red, purple or gold flowers, for instance.
How about the Relationship area, in the back right-hand corner? Enhance this section with romantic flowers in shades of red or pink, and with plantings that “pair up” nicely.
This might also be just the spot for a small cafe table and a few chairs to encourage conversation and companionship.
Water features create wonderful Feng Shui in a garden, especially when you make sure to install them in a spot that will enhance Chi energy the most.
Finally, consider the “path of Chi” to welcome healthy energy with an open, inviting route through your garden.
Whether you have a full backyard spread, a windowbox, or simply enjoy the plantings in your neighborhood, “garden awareness” adds positive energy to your life by keeping you in balance and harmony with nature.
