Garden feng Shui -Selecting Plants of Correct shapes for Good feng Shui

With feng Shui for home if you are lucky to have a garden then you also need to feng shui your garden for harmony, good luck and promoting money luck.  Garden feng shui is a very important aspect affecting our home. As we know feng shui is all about balance we need to pay importance on the five elements , fire , wood, earth, water and metal. Our garden represents our life and is an important part of our home. Many times we feng shui the whole house and neglect the garden.
Since a garden having many plants and flowers it is understood that it is the wood element and hence if your garden falls in this area then it is the best feng shui for goodluck and prosperity. Balancing the five elements in your garden as in your house will also encourage positive chi to enter your home. If the garden falls in any other area like metal or water then according to feng shui plants are not good for metal and fire burns the wood and turns it into ash, and if this is the case then there are cures in feng shui for this. If your garden faces north section of your house then you can have a rock garden with few plants and also keep the colours of the plants toned down. Feng shui colors for metals are silver, grey, yellow, cream and white so you can select plants having foliage or flowers in these colours.

Place a water feature in the north of your garden to attract positive energy by birds coming to drink water. The area of south can have red coloured plants and flowers of red, orange , yellow and bright colours are encouraged in this area for fame and recognition.
Every plant has a distinct shape and colour so you can select the right plants to balance elements in a feng shui garden. Wood element is enhanced by tall and woody plants so you can grow big trees and fruit trees here, that is the south and the south east sector of the garden.Remember to keep the size of plants and trees in check and avoid very tall trees in the front garden of your house as this will cover the entrance of your main door and even hide the visibility of your house from the main road, which is not good feng shui, as your main door has to have attractive flowering plants and not huge trees.

Rajni gandha Plant for North west
The Rajni gandha and other fragrant flowering plants can  be planted in the north west section of your garden which is considered the area for helpful friends.

Silver jade plant for North
For the south select square shaped plant pots or plants with leaves similar to square or rectangle are advised. Round shaped plant leaves are very good to plant in the metal area that is north and north west as they  resemble money . Here you can also plant kaner, ajwain and magnolias.

Climber for North career Area
Metal area or the west and north select plants of grey or dark green colour. Silver jade and green  jade  plants are the best in this area of your garden. For the north that is the career area plant vines and creepers that grow tall to promote your career luck. Avoid these vines to overpower the garden and also take are that they grow upwards as downwards growing plants pull down the energy of the garden and make you feel depressed. The pea climber is the best and we have this climber having deep blue flowers.
By paying little attention on garden feng shui you can promote good health, good luck, prosperity and also have happy relationships among family and friends. And no wonder if you share the plants, fruits, vegetables and  flowers you are bound to make many new friends!
