Designing Your Garden With Earth Feng Shui

 Designing Your Garden With Earth Feng Shui

Feng shui ground garden design

Designing a garden around feng shui can make your outdoor space more inviting, calming, and balanced. When designing a garden, I encourage using all five elements: earth, metal, water, wood, and fire.

Soil is one of the easiest elements to add to your garden. Earth is also the most friendly and accommodating element in feng shui. It is a mixture of yin and yang energy. You can use it to balance out areas that need control or organization.

The land is mud and mud and land without vegetation. He is a stable worker. You can use it to direct your plants and prevent water runoff. Earth elements create wonderful paths, sawdust, rooftops, and caverns.

Facts about Earth Garden

Earth is the only element in the Chinese zodiac to which four animals are dedicated. They include bull, dragon, goat and dog.
In the Chinese zodiac, the Earth element is among the new ones. The cycle goes like this: water, water, earth, wood, wood, earth, fire, fire, earth, metal, metal, earth.
The Earth does not stand still for a specific season. It's about moving on.
The main earth colors are yellow and brown.
The land is promoted with square shapes and flat roofs.
The hexagram is another good form of Earth energy.
The earth represents your health, knowledge and partnership.

Yin and Yang midpoints

Yin and Yang are polar opposites. Between these two points is the transition. We move gradually from one element or context to another. Day does not suddenly turn into night. We have sunrise and sunset, sunrise and sunset during the day and night.

The spaces between them are called cusps. Balconies are important to consider when designing your garden. You want the elements to move slowly and merge together rather than jumping from one element to another, which can lead to a clash or collision.

You can use colors and shapes to help you blend from one space to another.
Study how colors work on the color wheel.
Consider shapes that combine the principles of yin and yang. For example, hearts are made up of triangles and circular curves.
Earth is often a great element to use for transformations, but keep in mind that it is destructive to water. Carefully use the land around the water elements so as not to over-adjust the energy.
There are times when you want to tone down the Earth element, for example, if it expels a lot of dust. Consider adding more plants and poles. These items are attached to the wood. Wood is a destructive element for the Earth.

Add landmark

Earth is represented by rocks, clay, clay, bricks, clay, and pottery. Adding a rock or rock garden can help enhance the earth element of your yard.

Make sure to keep the earth elements clean. You don't want algae or mold growing on the surfaces. Your soil should be healthy and able to support plants. (Don't neglect your Earth's elements; maintain your garden regularly.)

Utensils left outside should be cleaned. You don't want piles of pottery or birds. You also don't want gross water and debris on your dishes.

Soil is the foundation of your garden. You want rich, nutrient-rich, level soil. You don't want a yard that is difficult to maintain or difficult to mow. You want to work on your feng shui garden first by starting with the earth element and getting the shape before working the soil and adding other elements.

Zen gardens usually center around the elements of the Earth. This is where you can collect stones to make beautiful arrangements. A Zen garden helps make your yard look inviting and mature.

Best sites for land features

The best bagua (energy areas) for pinning Earth features are the southwest, west, northwest, and northeast.

Romance and relationships belong in the southwest. It is also a place reserved for the head of the family. It can be a space dedicated to your mother or your wife. Add pottery or other clay art that represents the important woman or women in your life.
Also in the Southwest, sitting in pairs is encouraged. The seats are meant to remind you of important relationships.
A stone fireplace in the southwest is also recommended. Stone is a great building material for a fireplace, and fire symbolises the love between couples. It also sustains the soil.
In the West, the earth nourishes the metal. Western Space is about achievement, creativity, and kids. Place small flowers in earthy tones in this area.
The northwest represents the helpful people in our lives and travels. This space represents the male head of the family. This is a perfect place to dedicate to your father or husband. Add a bowl or terra cotta representative of a strong and generous man to the family. Someone kids look up to, someone who makes great decisions, and someone who's humble. (Don't put objects in your garden that represent people with negative chi.)
The northeast represents knowledge and spirituality. It is a Zen garden, a place for meditation, a good place to do yoga or read.

Zen garden design

Zen gardens were first created by Japanese Buddhist monks. Gardens for meditation. The traditional Zen garden is known as kairensui. It is a minimal arid landscape. Zen gardens are usually made of rocks, gravel, sand, very little plants, and no water.

Keep in mind: in feng shui, the Wood element is destructive to the earth. Plants will attack your rocks, pottery, and the like. You want an area in your garden where no plants are allowed.

Zen gardens often have a bridge, stone lanterns, and an enclosed wall separating the garden from the rest of the yard and house.

A Zen garden doesn't require as much care and attention as your space for plants. Not affected by seasonal changes. It is a transitional space between earth and sky.

The Zen garden is meant to be in a flat corner away from your yard.
Prepare the place so that it is suitable for meditation and prayer.
Pick other aspects of Zen gardens you've seen and like and incorporate them into your space.
Keep in mind: Large boulders can overwhelm an area, while smaller boulders can get lost in a sweeping landscape.
Zen must be replaced by chaos. It should be simple. It must be comprehensive. This would make you feel calm.
A Zen garden should be quiet, private, and beautiful.
Use a muted color scheme.
People enjoy making patterns out of pebbles or sand. Zen gardeners often utilize a variety of symbols that relate to the passing of the seasons, life and death, and the search for happiness.
Gravel is a must for a Zen garden. Pebble grading is a way to improve mental focus.
Gravel is more durable and easier to maintain than sand.
Use stones for imagination. Rocks can represent mountains, islands, shrines, familiar places, animals, or magical beasts. Looking at stones in abstract ways helps your mind wander, something that is encouraged in meditation.
The rocks represent man's desire for immortality.
Rocks are an invariable part of nature.
Bamboo screens can be used to separate your garden space from the rest of your yard.
Add sculptures to meditation poses.
Add the art of meditation.
The paths leading to your Zen Garden should have different elements than what you use in your Zen Garden. This will help contrast the two spaces.
Feng shui encourages curves and winding paths. It adds more dimension, whimsy and softness to your garden.
Water, if used, should be less about that and more about sound.
Recommended plants for a zen garden include Japanese maples, azaleas, bamboo, ferns, mosses, and epiphytes.
Although the zen garden requires less maintenance than other parts of your yard, it should not be neglected. Be sure to remove weeds, rake leaves, and mow the area. Set the gravel on fire instead of letting it still.

Add statues of bulls, dragons, goats, or dogs.

To highlight the Earth element, add figurines or other art of bulls, dragons, goats, and dogs. You can also add oxen for bulls or sheep for cows and goats.

These animals are considered to represent or patronize the Earth element. In the Chinese zodiac, the Ox took second place in the race when it was jumped by the Rat and reached the Jade Emperor. Dragon finished fifth after temporarily leaving the race to help a drought-stricken village. The goat was the eighth after the fun. The dog ranked eleventh after the monkey helped your parents fight evil in another country.

Taurus leads the transition between winter and spring.
The dragon directs the transition between spring and summer.
The goat directs the transition between summer and fall.
The dog directs the transition between fall and winter.
I recommend adding sculptures of these animals from stone, ceramics, terracotta and clay. You want the animals to symbolize and represent the item you want to promote. These animals are mostly positive. They encourage health, longevity, stability and legacy.

Animals are not meant to be seen as gods, goddesses, or idols. You shouldn't worship them. They act as guardians and protectors of your garden space.

Add yellow and brown plants

Yellow is a wonderful color found in nature. You can easily find vegetables, fruits, flowers and trees in different shades of yellow. Yellow is associated with the solar plexus and gut health. A healthy solar plexus forms a strong foundation for the overall health of your body.

Brown is more distinct. Trees will naturally have brown leaves in late fall and winter when they drop their leaves. Brown vegetables and fruits can require a little more creativity to find. You don't want to keep food that is turning brown. You want food that has a naturally healthy brown color.

There are several types of flowers with a normal brown color, but they are not as common as yellow flowers. Spotting yellow trees in spring will be easier than spotting brown trees in spring. You can plant trees with yellow flowers for spring and trees with yellow-brown leaves for fall.

Brown is more associated with soil and earth. You want healthy soil because it is the foundation of your entire garden. Be sensitive to the color of the soil and the nutrients that go into it. The right fertilizer and fertilizer can make a huge difference in the quality of your plants.
