Feng shui incorporates arrangement and design principles to bring harmony, balance and calm to a home decorated under its practices. When most people think of feng shui, typically interior design comes to mind. What many may not realize is that the harmonic and energy-balancing effects of feng shui are also highly auspicious for front yard landscaping. Feng shui, the Chinese practice of designing and decorating a space to attract and maximize the flow of positive energy, or positive chi, through it, has been employed for over three millennia. Here are several tips of Feng Shui for front yard. Mow your lawn in an even pattern that is pleasing to the eye. The flow of the lawn will dictate the flow of feng shui energy into your home. Decorate your lawn with trees, flowering bushes and plants. Live plants bring the wood element of feng shui into your space, which is needed to correct any imbalances that may occur in the house.
Build a walkway that is flowing and meandering if possible. Decorate alongside the walkway with plants and yard art which will slow visitors down as they cross your lawn, giving them time to collect the energy you have created. In Feng Shui, they also will bring a smile or a peaceful feeling to all who enter. Plant taller trees and thick bushes around the lawn to contain the energy of your home. A solid hedge can help keep the ch’i within the boundaries and close to you and your family. Trim trees that cast too much shade or darkness over the house.
