Harmonize Your Yard With Feng Shui Landscaping
If you want to harmonize your surround with positive chi, the you need to use Feng shui landscaping. Feng Shui encompasses how people relate to everything, people, animals, plants, surroundings and the environment. A home’s chi, or natural energy, needs to flow freely inside and out for productive or positive benefits. There are several ways of Feng shui landscaping to change your yard look. Here’s two examples. Direct the flow of energy with a pathway of natural stones that goes from the street to the center of the yard, leading up to the entry of the home. It’s a good idea to have the driveway on either side of the house rather than up the middle. Edge the pathway with scented flowers or herbs that release a pleasant fragrance as you brush by. Be careful too of using too many hard surfaces attract negative Chi or energy. Then, a water feature, such as a gurgling fountain, summons good chi. Replace still water, like that of birdbath, with clean, fresh water as required. And keep scale in mind; no one feature or element of your garden, from thorny plants to wind chimes to ponds, should seem to overpower the other for balance and harmony.
