7 Easy Ways to Feng Shui Your Garden Space

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese belief that man should live in harmony with the environment and that everything should be done to promote the free flow of chi, or lifeforce energy, around buildings.

If you’re not getting the most from your garden space, be it an office, a family room or a creative studio, poor feng shui could the reason. Fortunately, there are many simple steps you can take to increase the flow of chi and to better harness your garden space’s natural energies.

For Garden Offices

1. The position of your desk is the most important thing when considering feng shui for your garden office. Do not site your desk immediately opposite the office door, as in doing so you will be hit with the full force of all incoming chi. However, never have your back to the door, as symbolically you will be turning your back on new business and prosperity. The best place for your desk is with a wall behind you, in the corner furthest from the door but facing it.

2. The wealth quadrant of your garden office is situated in the upper left corner as you look into the room. Place something in your wealth quadrant which symbolizes your success - perhaps displays of award winning work, or photos of with happy clients. It’s beneficial to have something red in this corner too, a vibrant red plant for example.

For all Garden Spaces

3. No matter what you use your garden space for, try to avoid sharp corners of furniture sticking out into the room. If that’s not possible try to screen them in some way.

4. Avoid mirrors in your garden space. The placing of mirrors in feng shui is notoriously difficult, and if placed wrongly they can reflect and magnify negative energy.

5. Keep your garden space tidy! Clutter is one of the biggest chi-hinderers of all - if you have piles of stuff everywhere, the flow of energy will stagnate.

6. Anything which creates a sense of natural movement in your garden space will help to encourage good chi. Consider a couple of wind chimes, or an indoor water feature. The idea is to keep the elements moving, so that nothing gets stuck.

7. Colour is important in feng shui too. Blue is calming and harmonious, while yellow encourages creativity. Red is quite an aggressive colour, but could be useful if you need a competitive edge in your business.

Improving the feng shui in your garden space might go a long way towards improving your business, or increasing the harmony in your family. You’ve got nothing to lose by giving it a go, so why not make it your mission to feng shui your space?
