If you would design them according to the appropriate rules, then you will ensure well-being and good luck in your house. Among other things, you would thus ensure much better relationships between the family members.
We are also convinced that the design in the Feng Shui garden contributes a lot to a more harmonious atmosphere. That’s why we want to share with you some rules that will help you to follow this philosophy. So you could then easily decide for the appropriate garden ideas.
One of the most famous elements of Feng Shui
A blooming lotus – symbol of purity and perfection
Variety and balance
First and foremost, the garden ideas that you choose should offer variety and interest at the same time. In addition, they should provide as a combination for a perfect balance.
Gardening ideas with animals are not only welcome, but also desirable in this style. Especially the sculptural design of phoenix, dragon, tiger, turtle would have to be found in one form or another in the garden.
You can also put traditional Asian statues in your garden
Ideal garden maintenance for your Feng Shui garden
In addition to the special and perhaps somewhat exotic garden ideas, the good care also plays a very important role in Feng Shui Garden. In our case this means that no fallen leaves and branches should be left on the ground. Sweep these regularly. The same applies to the flowers that have already withered. Leaving them aside prevents the free flow of the energy stream that would provide for the well-being of the family and the people in the garden in general.
A well maintained Feng Shui garden
Sunny and shady spots
The garden ideas you choose should be very practical in this regard. You need shady and sunny spots. Shapes and figures should provide variety and flexibility. There should be many different colors in the Feng Shui garden. Thus, the Ying and Yang energy, so the male and female energy are in balance.
The Chi energy could then flow more freely with such a design. This will also be achieved through the many flowering plants.
Sharp edges – here and at home should be avoided according to Feng Shui. If they have to be there anyway because of the construction, then you should let decorate or other means look softer.
A perfect variant would be the Ying Yang symbol
Pointed and arched leaves
Also with the garden ideas, which concern the plants themselves, one should set according to Feng Shui on variety. You would need to combine sharp and round leaves. Thorns are good too. But you should not dominate. Otherwise, they could contribute to aggressive moods. It is recommended that the plants with thorns are best located in the corners of the garden. So these would protect the homeowner from bad energy and envy.
Bonsai is indispensable for your Feng Shui style garden
Make your wishes come true
If you want to fulfill your wishes, then position the conifers in the eastern part of the garden. In the western area, the white flowers belong if you want to experience a romantic love.
Northwest blue flowers indicate happiness. Reds in the south of the garden must help you get more company in your garden.

They should make a great mood together, but each created from different materials. The shapes should be those that are basically recommended by Feng Shui.
