Integrate the Spirit of Feng Shui into Your Yard

When applied to your yard, feng shui design will bring its healthful energy into your home as well.

When incorporating feng shui design into your yard, even a very small space is adequate. It is terrific to have a huge space to work with, but do not worry if the area is small since you can always introduce feng shui design.

The same tools you employ to incorporate feng shui design into your home can be used in the garden. In order to understand the energy map, or bagua, of your garden, you will first want to know your home’s bagua. twf029-ei__30264.1377264653.208.278_category.original.jpg

Before getting going, make sure you understand the five elements of feng shui so that you can make the most of their energy.

The northeast corner of your garden, for instance, connects to personal growth and self-cultivation energy, and Earth is the feng shui element that is important to integrate it. The ideal addition to the northeast corner of your yard might be a serene Zen garden decorated with natural stone, as they represent the Earth element in feng shui.

Think about integrating a water feature into these feng shui areas: East (health & family), North (career & path in life), or Southeast (money and abundance).

The Elegance of Simple Garden Decor: The Landscape Fountain

It is also possible to place your exterior water fountain near a wall since they do not need to be hooked to a nearby pond. Excavating, installing and cleaning a nearby pond are no longer needed. Due to the fact that this feature is self-contained, no plumbing work is needed. Adding water on a regular } basis is necessary, however. Empty the water from the basin and put in fresh water whenever the surrounding area is not clean.

Any number of materials can be used to make garden wall fountains, but stone and metal are the most frequently used. You need to know the style you are shooting for in order to select the best material. Garden wall fountains come in many models and sizes, therefore ensure that the style you choose to purchase is hand-crafted, easy to hang and lightweight. Ensure that your water feature is manageable as far as maintenance is concerned. Generally, most installations are straight forward since the only parts which may require scrutiny are the re-circulating pump and the hanging hardware whereas other kinds of setups can be a bit more difficult. It is very simple to liven up your garden with these kinds of fountains.

The Life-Changing Effects of Water Features

The movement and sound of water generated from a fountain have two effects: cleaning the air and proving a place of relaxation and peace, both of which will improve your quality of life.

There are many advantages to having an interior or outdoor water fountain which you may not even recognize. Water makes up a large portion of our body composition, and populations world-wide tend to gravitate towards coastal areas.

While there are many extravagant ways to integrate the benefits of water into your daily life (like investing in a beach house!), a much more convenient solution is to install a water feature in your home.

Your patio, porch, or back yard can be upgraded by setting up an outdoor garden fountain. Even if you are already pleased with your outdoor area, the introduction of one of the many outdoor fountains available will make you appreciate it even more. If you have a screened porch, consider installing one there, or if not, then on the exterior wall above your patio. Turn your flower garden into an oasis of serenity by adding a beautiful tiered model. Birds love birdbath fountains because the flow of the water ensures that it remains clean and does not build up bacteria and algae. The final detail your garden area needs to be an oasis of peace is the sound of flowing water.

Wall Water Fountains: So Many Styles Available to You

When you are limited on space, a garden wall fountain is the perfect solution. These decorative pieces are simple to put up on any wall surface and do not take up a lot of room. Prices range from cheap to expensive and there are many types available so everyone should be able to find the ideal design for them. You should be able to find countless different color options as well as sizes. These gorgeous water fountains are also fashionable with anyone looking to add some pizzazz to their outdoor decor. If you want a different waterfall effect, consider installing more than one fountain if you have space available on your wall.

Lots of options are out there if you decide to get a garden fountain. Two of the main things to be established are which style to purchase and where to install it.

The Favorable Effects of Water Fountains on Your Four-Legged Friends and Visiting Birds

Anyone who has bird feeders knows that outdoor water fountains bring in wildlife. All birds need somewhere to drink, bathe and preen. Robins, thrushes, orioles and warblers, though not attracted to bird feeders, are instead drawn to the motion of water created by fountains. Many flying creatures enjoy running water instead of still water, thus making such outdoor features much more appealing than bowl shaped birdbaths. Birds hear the trickling and splashing and are even more likely to come visit.

Dogs like fountains because they provide another place to drink fresh water. Dogs and cats will be outdoors looking out for refreshing water during hot weather. Also, routinely flowing water fountains require less maintenance than the still water of a birdbath that tend to get dirtier.
