Feng Shui in the Garden

The size of your Garden is irrelevant when it comes to planning and layout. The basic Feng Shui principles of the Five Elements, the Bagwa or Pa Kua, the significance of compass directions and the Nine Basic Remedies apply equally to your garden as to your home.

The Garden is the Yin and the home is the Yang, so the overall effect of your garden should convey the balance of Yin and Yang. There should also be a balance in the way straight lines and angles associated with a house are complimented to achieve that balance. Flower beds and curved paths can be used to counterpoint and balance the straight lines of a house.

Balance can be achieved in the garden with the use of contrasting textures, such as the roughness of rocks joining the smooth surface of water. The contrast of rocks and water also represents the balance of stillness (rocks) and movement (water) and the harmony of humans and nature. The size of your garden may make it difficult to include a watercourse. This can be overcome with the simple addition of a birdbath or fountain.
