When we hear about Feng Shui it is often in relation to home and business interiors… where is the bed or desk to be placed? what do I do about so many stairs? Is our bathroom in the wrong place?!

However, Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese method of living in harmony with one's environment, originated in the landscape. This introduction to Feng Shui will focus on applying the principles to your own gardening style, helping you create a landscape that more deeply reflects who you are. Feng Shui can provide your gardening efforts, whether large or small in scale, with meaning and intention to positively impact your life. Principles of ch’i (energy) flow, Yin/Yang, use of color, the Bagua (the Feng Shui map), the Feng Shui meaning of plants, and the significance of water in the garden will be explored, illustrated by photos of gardens and landscapes from around the world.
