Gardens need Feng Shui, too.

After applying the principles of feng shui to my own home, I decided to work on the garden and bought the Feng Shui Garden by Gill Hale.

An introduction discusses the "whole" view as applied through feng shui today. Part one covers feng shui principles for the garden with discussions about the nature of the energies, the five elements and how to use them, the bagua, chi, the plants and feng shui in practice. I particularly found the section on the movement of chi energy to be fascinating (covered are stagnant chi, cutting chi and beneficial chi).

In part two creating the feng shui garden is covered with a foreword about first de-cluttering the area and then composting. Using the bagua as a design tool is particularly helpful.

Colorful diagrams and photos are interspersed throughout the book to help with visuals. A section on enhancements, water features and statuary will especially appeal to readers.

Recommended.
