Feng Shui for the Garden
A Practical and Easy to Use Guide to the Art of Feng Shui in the GardenBook - 2000
There is an opinion that a Feng Shui garden must necessarily be an oriental garden but this is not so. The calm Zen gardens of Japan embody a practice similar to Feng Shui but that are intended to encourage a meditative state using calm water features, shade, and patterns in gravel and stones. Often they are totally devoid of plant life. In Feng Shui terms a space like this would be described as Yin, whereas in the West our gardens, often bursting with vitality, are on the Tang side as are our busy lives. It is because we are so busy that Feng Shui should make a contribution to our lives. In this highly technological world it is easy to forget that we are all children of nature and that our relationship with is essential to our sense of spirituality. Feng Shui for the Garden seeks to harmonize our existence with the world of nature.
