Feng Shui Tip: Your Garden

Feng shui masters often recommend plants to help diffuse bad chi and energize good feng shui. If you are wondering why, it’s because plants represent wood – the only one of the five elements that has life. That’s why garden feng shui is so important, you must ensure that the areas surrounding the exterior of your home are auspicious. This will far surpass anything you do on the inside! 

So, if you live in a home that is surrounded by a garden, be sure it is well cared for, filled with lush and healthy plants and that it has a nice balance of light and shade. In doing so, you will enjoy good fortune. But, if your garden is left untended and weeds and underbrush begin to take over, the once happy energy will dissolve and yin energy will dominate. Your health, prosperity and happiness will certainly suffer. 

Create a lush garden

Note that you don’t need a large garden to attract the precious yang energy that will create a healthy growth of wealth for you. City gardens, apartment and rooftop gardens can also be designed to effectively capture the best energy even with space constraints! 

Most of the good garden feng shui depends on the plants that you select. When you are choosing the plants for your garden, it’s important to keep balance in mind. In addition to lots of healthy flowering plants with happy yang energy, you will also need some shady areas and leafy trees to maintain yin and yang harmony. When we speak of “balance” it doesn’t necessarily mean that yin and yang forces must be equal – rather it means that both must be present and that no area of the garden is either too yin or too yang. 

Choose succulents like the jade plant

Good feng shui plants to consider are succulents, such as the jade plant with thick water-filled leaves. The money plant is also a good choice (its botanical name is Philodendron scandens). This one needs plenty of water and doesn’t do well in strong sunlight. If you are selecting flowers consider the peony, chrysanthemum or flowering bulbs like the narcissus or lilies. For longevity consider planting bamboo or pine trees and go for the smaller variety. 

Orange trees symbolize good fortune

Fruit trees are definitely auspicious so try for a few in your garden area if possible. The peach tree is a wonderful choice as is the orange tree – a popular symbol of good fortune. If you have a pair of orange or lime trees it is considered extremely good feng shui and they are best grown within view of the main front door. If your garden is in the back of your home, then within view of your back door. 

Always keep your garden well cared for with love and attention to enjoy a good life and extremely wonderful feng shui! 

Happy gardening!
