Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese approach to creating an environment that promotes prosperity, health, and happiness. The idea isn't exclusively related to gardening, but to all aspects of life. In The Feng Shui Garden, Gill Hale and Sue Minter explain how you can apply the principles of Feng Shui to a garden, patio, balcony, or backyard in order to revitalize their space in a natural way.
The book offers color photos of actual Feng Shui gardens and clear instructions for the novice on the beginning basics principles of Chi, Yin and Yang, Lo Shu, and Bagua. You'll learn how to choose an optimal garden site and shape; create balanced window boxes, roof gardens, and terraces; and place garden paths and statuary.
The Feng Shui Garden is an excellent alternative for beginner and advanced gardeners who are seeking methods and philosophies of gardening other than those traditionally Western.
