A client recently asked me if there such a thing as a Feng Shui garden. Organic Spa Magazine asked me to answer some questions about using Feng Shui in the garden. Look for this article in the May edition. If you google the magazine and Feng Shui gardens you can find the article on line.
To start any project with Feng Shui in mind first look to see how clear is the space? Can you walk freely throughout the garden? Winding paths create a relaxing ambiance. A Feng Shui garden is free from dead plants and trees and branches.
Now you can bring in the 5 elements. Add some red color for Fire. A bird bath or fountain for Water.
Metal wind chimes or a metallic gazed planter adds the Metal element. Earth is automatically present.
Wood is present with the trees and plants.
Plant flowers or foliage to correspond with the Feng Shui Bagua, according to specific colors for each corner. This is explained in detail in the Bagua section of this website.
Some examples would be a red apple tree or pomegranate in the Wealth corner, some easy Mexican primrose in the Relationship corner, blue cornflowers or rosemary in the Wisdom corner and white daisies in the helpful people corner. Try the easiest varieties for your climate.
