It’s time to explore the ancient art of Feng Shui, but not in your home…in your garden.

We’re inviting you to consider the ‘harmony’ of your garden.

Feng Shui, pronounced foong-shway originated in China more than 4000 years ago and has been practised in the East for centuries.

The benefits of Feng Shui are now starting to be understood and used in the West but mostly within people’s homes. It is the art of tuning into the seasonal changes, tides and vibrations of nature to bring health, wealth and good fortune.

According to Feng Shui experts the orientation of plants and the position of gates is important for the flow of energy through your garden. You need to be sure you deflect negative energies and channel positive ones.

Moving and still water features are good. Water in the garden provides a calming aura with small raised - so that you can sit on the edge - ponds, being particularly positive.

From our research it would seem that a weekend’s pond building project can result in a lifetime’s relaxation!

Other things to consider include ‘thoughtfully positioned’ stones or large rocks, they provide a guide for the flow of positive energies, large leafy plants that block out noise and wind chimes with harmonic tones.
