I’ve always been intrigued by Feng Shui – the idea that we can use energy forces to harmonise ourselves with our surrounding environment. That being said I’ve only ever thought about it in relation to indoor spaces, rather than outdoor ones.
However, I’ve come to learn that the garden is an area which can be just as powerful when it comes to the connection between Feng Shui and your lifestyle.
Applying Feng Shui to a garden is said to help attract positive energy and reduce negative energy in many areas of your life. From the type of plants you choose for your garden to your outdoor furniture choices, you can optimise your outdoor space to bring in positive energy by applying a few basic principles.
