Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement. The Chinese believe that by placing things to encourage the beneficial flow of Chi (Energy Force) you can create harmonious change which affects your health, wealth and relationships.

Feng Shui is becoming increasingly popular in the West. The Feng Shui garden incorporates Feng Shui princicples, thereby creating beneficial Chi in your environment.

A Feng Shui garden should follow nature's lead as much as possible with the primary aim of creating harmony and balance. There are certain fundamentals to remember when you begin to plan your Feng Shui garden.

Paths should never be straight, as chi energy would run too quickly towards your home, instead let them meander and curve through your garden. A curved path encourages chi to move more slowly and freely. If you already have straight paths, then allow plants to grow over them so the chi can circulate freely around them.

A garden should have "living spaces" that provide a haven for friends and family to relax and enjoy the sunshine and gentle breeze.

Trees or large shrubs will provide privacy and protection at the back of the garden.

Balance is created by mixing different sizes, shapes and colors of plants so that no one species is overwhelmed by another.

Water features such as pools, ponds and fountains are beautiful and encourage beneficial chi. They also symbolize prosperity and create yin (feminine) energy.

You can create more Yang (masculine) energy by using garden lights to add light to the garden’s dark areas. Remember balance and harmony is the key to a Feng Shui Garden.
