Feng Shui Garden Lighting.

Adding lights to your Feng Shui garden can create a warm inviting glow in the evenings to give it a more balanced and relaxed feel. Lighting can be used to highlight plants and foliage, enhancing the colors of the seasons. Lights represent the fire element and give out positive yang energy, that can be used to create auspicious Feng Shui.

The warm glow of candles always adds to the ambience of your garden and brings in more positive yang energy. You can also use candles that are designed to keep mosquitoes out of your environment at night.

Hanging lanterns from hooks or trees is especially potent when placed in the South of any garden, as this particular area symbolizes the Fire element. Small lights placed anywhere in your feng shui garden create good fortune by adding positive yang chi. By cleverly using lighting you can effectively harness Earth luck, thereby enhancing and activating family and relationship luck.

Soft and subtle garden lighting placed beneath foliage or behind rocks can add to the ambience of your garden and enhance positive yang energy. If the areas you plan on using lighting receive plenty of sun during the daytime, try using solar powered lighting that automatically turns on when the sun sets.

You can bring about major improvements to your garden feng-shui by the use of lights to energize good areas of the garden and offset problem areas. The potency of specific elemental forces can be increased to attract recognition and fame. 

Feng Shui Garden Accessories and Ornaments

Once you have resolved the layout and planning of your feng shui garden you need to consider what accessories you can add to enhance it.

Tables that have large round edges are best as they donít give off cutting energy. Chairs with flowing curves will enhance the flow of chi.

There are many styles and materials you can choose from for your garden furniture. Wood is always preferable.

Big round terracotta or earthenware pots symbolize the Earth element and can be the focus point of your garden. Place them in the Southwest (Marriage and Romance) and Northeast (Education and knowledge) areas. 

Sculpture or stones will absorb energy or force energy to move around it-thereby slowing it down.

Gazing balls strategically placed can deflect negative shi. Wind chimes and gongs add to the beneficial movement of chi.

Different types of trellises can be used for trailing plants to soften cutting corners or walls or to conceal dull sheds.

Many people incorporate gazebos as a part of the design of their garden adding a serene and private place to relax on sunny, summer afternoons.

Remember balance and harmony is the key to a good feng shui garden.
