Spring is a time when people are thinking about how to re-decorate the patio, or backyard garden. What kinds of plants are new this year? Is it time for new garden furniture? What colors of annuals would energize or relax the garden? What can you do to enjoy the garden more? If last year’s backyard efforts left you frustrated, think about creating a garden for relaxation and reflection.

Gardens should be a place to sit, meditate and commune with nature. When I think of a garden, I think of meandering paths of natural stone, the sound of a fountain and interesting ground cover with plants that appear to have naturally planted themselves. Planting vegetables is not enough when it comes to the perfect garden. I am more of a color and flower person and having the right ambiance and a setting to enjoy it is what gardening is all about.

In Feng Shui, the garden should be a place that supports the home and homeowners. The principles of Feng Shui use movement of energy as the reason we feel good in spaces. Literally translated, Feng Shui means wind and water and movement is a big part of both of those things. The goal is balance and harmony in the garden. Feng Shui guidelines suggest curved and rounded lines instead of sharp angles and points. Many gardens feature unnatural somewhat artificial coloring or severe angles. These do not promote relaxation and they don’t “feel” good.

Good Feng Shui gardens must have a place to rest and reflect on life. A garden should be a place to take a moment, smells the flowers, and appreciate the wonder of nature. Ideally, a Feng Shui garden would have benches and chairs of wood or stone instead of manmade aluminum or plastic. Somehow, plastic folding chairs just do not fit the natural picture. If possible, pick out handcrafted furniture for your Feng Shui garden. Anything handcrafted, gives the garden has a very special loving energy.

The creatures of the garden want and need the best as well. Feng Shui products such as birdhouses and wind chimes are ideal to invite a loving energy and sound close to your setting. The best birdhouses are built with the birds in mind. Don’t get too carried away with the fancy purely decorative birdhouses that are of no use to the birds. Remember, a good Feng Shui garden enhances and supports nature, it does not create havoc with a bunch of “stuff” that is better off left at the store.

Feng Shui uses color, sound, movement, the elements and more in a garden. Colors of the bagua (the nine areas of life) can enhance the outdoors beautifully. Some guidelines for plant selections to enhance your life are:
• Career area or front center - The best career boosting flowers, plants and trees are mostly dark purple or blue such as honeysuckle, jasmine, periwinkle, trillium and snapdragons, orange, elder, apple, oak, maple, poplar, myrtle, all mosses, ferns, dill, goldenseal and mint. The element is water, so it is the ideal place to put a fountain or pool. Add fish to it and double your luck.
• Wealth area or far left corner – The best wealth boosting plants include purples, golds and plants that are lush. Golden rod, honeysuckle, trillium, all fruit trees, pecan, walnut, oak, pine, mosses and ferns, basil, clover, dill and mint are good choices. Add a small wooden structure that moves such as a windmill or pinwheel to circulate energy. The element of wealth is wood, so this is an ideal location for the Westport Adirondack chairs and chairs.
• The Fame and recognition area is in the far center. Add red to the plant mix. Poppies, roses, cherry trees, heather, strawberries and peppers are ideal. The element is fire, so this is a good place for a string lf lights or the fire pit or barbecue.
• The partnership area is at the far right corner. The best relationship plants and flowers would be pink. Bleeding hearts, roses, gardenias, lavender, orchids, periwinkle, violets and geraniums are nice choices. The element of this area is earth, so a good idea to place a large stone statue.
• The health area is in the center or the heart of the garden. Yellow is the color, so jasmine, marigolds, sunflowers, daisies and roses are good flower choices. This is the heart of the garden, so honor the heart with something special such as a gazing ball or crystal.
The few simple Feng Shui decorating ideas in a garden can do a lot to enhance all of the areas of life. Make your garden a place of harmony with nature. Put things there that you love and make you feel comfortable. The Feng Shui garden can support you in life so take time to sit and smell the flowers.
