6 Ways to Feng Shui your Backyard this Spring

  
  
  

Feng Shui Backyard

Is your backyard ready for summer? Spring is the time to begin planting a garden to bring life into your yard, looking at how the trees in your yard may be affecting your family's health and wealth, and to Feng Shui your yard for a prosperous, healthy, successful and fun-filled spring and summer.

1. Pay attention to natural elements. It's good Feng Shui to have an area of land where indigenous plants are permitted to grow freely. This is termed a “wild garden,” and shows a respect for nature. Pay close attention to the trees on your property -- they should not be overgrown or touching the house.

2. Add water. Water, in general, is good Feng Shui, promoting the flow of chi and, depending where it is placed, increasing your income. Water includes naturally occurring lakes and ponds or man-made ponds, waterfalls and fountains.

3. Use the Bagua. You can employ the Bagua and its eight trigrams on your patio or across your entire yard to activate the chi in certain areas and strengthen relationships, improve your career, gain fame and recognition, or earn more money.

4. Use a round table in your patio set for entertaining to encourage friends to linger and make people comfortable.
A round table has no poison arrows that may make people feel uncomfortable or even, after time, cause illness. With no head or foot, a round table makes guests feel comfortable and encourages conversation, so your spring and summer parties are sure to be a hit with your friends.

5. Consider the five-elemental color cycle. Your patio, its furniture, and accent pieces such as plants and pottery can work with the colors of your house in the five-elemental color cycle. Learn more about how to use Feng Shui's five elements on your home's exterior here.

6. Add motion to your yard to increase the flow of chi.
Items such as windsocks, flags and windmills increase the flow of chi in a space, creating a balance in your yard and making it a comfortable, welcoming and festive environment for guests.

Hello, 
You mentioned having a round table on the patio, I noticed in your photograph you had a square one which one should we use? 
Thank you

hi! I was just wondering what would be the best area to place a grill? 
 
Thank you :)

Back center of the patio is related to the fame area or how you are seen in the world. Adding the fire element can activate this and increase your visibility which can have a positive impact on your career opportunities.

Hello,  
 
In using a bagua for your backyard, do you use it as an extention of the one on your home, with the center of your home remaining the center of the bagua or do you apply it with all 8 trigrams to the backyard alone? I'm trying to place a water fountain and want to be sure not to place it in the wrong space.  
Thank you! 
Deb
