Living Green OUTSIDE Your Home with Feng Shui
Living Green outside our homes with Feng Shui helps us create balance and happier, better lives – in nature.
- a rain barrel to conserve water and use to water your flowers and plants.
- a bird feeder or incorporating a bird bath to attract bird sounds and energy to your garden.
- use ceramic pots instead of plastic: ceramic in Feng Shui is the earth element, plastic does not belong to any of the elements. Tall ones, short ones, use different sizes of pots for variety.
- buy wooden or metal garden furniture instead of plastic: wood represents growth and metal represents clarity and focus in Feng Shui.
- when planning paths, use a variety of bark mulch, rock or concrete and create curves and bends wherever you can to make it interesting and slow the energy down.
- add a compost bin for dead grass, leaves and any household water. This is great fertilizer for other garden flowers/plants.
- Install underground sprinklers or put timers on garden hoses so even if you are away, everything gets watered and looks healthy.
- Get help at a garden centre on what flowers/plants to use that will create different colours and heights in your garden all summer long.
- Hire a summer student to mow your lawn to give you more free time and give them a little income.
- Plant vegetables and herbs which will add different textures and colours to your landscape.
- Start early and use seeds, very economical but require regular TLC!
- Build wooden pergolas in some areas of the garden to create sunny and shady spots. This adds a good balance of yin/yang to the garden.
- Create a meditation area to sit and read, in a quiet corner so you can enjoy nature and solitude.
- Share your vegetables/herbs with friends, it feels good to share the wealth!
