Chinese feng shui is quite widespread not only in the world, but also in Russia. For sure, some of your family and friends use the rules of this system in decorating their homes, saturating it with positive energy. It is possible to combine Feng Shui of your home and land with the most ancient traditions of folk art and ergonomics, art, psychology and physiology of living.
Applying feng shui techniques to the interior and exterior helps to restore and maintain harmony with the world around us.
Chinese practice says that the garden and the homestead are one. Most of the time, garden design is simple to the point of banality, but saturated with a special soothing atmosphere.
The reason is simple: gardens are the decoration of the dwelling. That is why on every Chinese property one finds small arbors, small squares and other elements designed for quiet, tranquil pastime.
Studies by feng shui experts show: practically all urban apartments are completely uninhabitable. It is enough to study photos of plots designed according to feng shui to understand why many people strive to buy their own country house or plot of land.
However, it is not enough to buy a nice house and a plot of land in order to live comfortably. It is necessary to approach the design of the site according to feng shui, guided by the principles of this system. Otherwise, with your own hands you can create a garden with negative energy.
Harmony of the garden plot
Harmony of the garden and home can be achieved by applying simple principles of feng shui. It is necessary to know that the garden plot is a peculiar reflection of the inner world and the connection is two-way.
To plan the plot according to feng shui, first of all you should divide it (in your mind, on paper) into eight parts, relying on the sides of the world. One of the basic rules of Chinese practice states that the entrance to the garden should be placed in the north.
However, in today’s realities it is not always possible to position the plot according to feng shui. But there is a way out of this situation: when determining the entrance to the plot, take it as the north side. In the future, when designing, it is necessary to define the entrance as the north side of the plot, even if this layout does not correspond to the actual sides of the world.
Sectors of the site
The principles of feng shui state: the house should be placed in the center of the plot, as it represents the basis of well-being. The garden will be a kind of protection for the home.
If it is not possible to place the house in the center, it is necessary to place here the trees that bloom from the end to the beginning of winter.
The southern sector is responsible for the social position of the family. It is appropriate to plant more fertile plants here. If there will be plants and trees in the south of the plot, which in their growth aspire upwards, but it will help the family to always achieve their goals.
Red flowers and trees with bright green foliage are appropriate for the southern sector. For example, roses, gladioli, fir, thuja or boxwood. Also, it is appropriate to plant bright red berries here.
Southwest reflects well-being in the family. In this area, according to the rules of feng shui, it is necessary to design a place where the whole family can spend evenings and weekends together. This area must be given special attention. For example, a gazebo or a table with a canopy to protect from rain and sun would be appropriate here.
The Southwest should be designed to be spacious and comfortable. You should not grow fertile plants in the Southwest. Take a closer look at brightly colored flowers. For example, planting large yellow flowers will bring positive energy into the house.
The western plot is a reflection of the Yin element. It is responsible for children. In case there are offspring in the family, a great idea would be to place here a children’s playground or a swing.
Decorate this area should be in yellow and orange colors. There are no rules in the choice of flora, but if the family does not yet have children, but plans to, you need to plant here a mallow.
Northwest is the masculine. The energy of this area represents travel and self-development. For maximum harmony, metal objects should be installed here: grids, benches, etc.
One should adhere to austerity and modesty in the design of this area. Flowers will not be appropriate here. It is best to plant shrubs and trees, such as apricots.
This is where the energy is channeled into career development. As mentioned above, it is best to place the entrance to the site in the north. As the passage of the career ladder is a slow and measured event, it is necessary to surround this sector with tranquility and only periodically trim the bushes.
This sector is aimed at stimulating academic success. Root vegetables and spices are best suited for planting. To attract energy, you can decorate this area with stones.
The energy of this sector is responsible for the family. In order to speed up the treatment, it is necessary to activate the energy of this very sector. Here will be fine to look favorite flowers of the family members, as well as trees that symbolize longevity (for example, grapes or oak).
Southeast is the money sector. Strangely enough, dandelions and vegetables are most appropriate for it. Also, the installation of a fountain will help to activate the money energy, as it symbolizes prosperity.
Elements of feng shui in a garden plot
In feng shui plot planning, not only the design of the sectors according to the sides of the world is important, but also the harmony between them. According to the rules of feng shui, it is necessary to separate the areas so that the energies of the sectors do not come into contact with each other.
Pathways and walkways. Chinese practice says that the main pathway to the house should be winding. The width and length of the path is not important, but it is ideal if it looks in harmony with the house and grounds.
Lighting. Not only the comfort, but also the energy of the site depends on its location. It is ideal if there will be lanterns in the corners. To attract good luck in the house it is necessary to illuminate the southern sector at dark time of the day. To prevent discord in a family, the light should be placed on the southwest side.
Decor and Furniture. Since wood dominates here, it is necessary to dilute the site with other materials and stimulate other elements. For example, in the garden you can place a wrought iron table with a glass top. To stimulate the element of Metal and Earth garden can be decorated with stone planters. Element of Water will attract wooden chairs painted blue. To create harmony and tranquility the garden can be decorated with large stones.
Patio (patio). This area should be decorated and decorated according to the general rules of feng shui. Do not use sharp objects in the interior.
Water. It has a strong energy. Among other things, it saturates all the flora on the plot. You can install a fountain or equip a small pond. Even with a small space, it is necessary to create at least a small water area.
It is very pleasant to spend time with family and friends on the homestead in the warm season. Use the opportunity to saturate your home and garden with positive energy, because it will give not only peace and joy at home, but also harmony with yourself.
