Enrich Your Yard with the Help of Feng Shui

Introducing feng shui design into your yard will help spread its energy into your home and your life. 2205-9904__43454.jpg

When incorporating feng shui design into your yard, even a very small area works. If you have a lush, beautiful one, that is great, but even a smaller area works well with feng shui design.

The primary feng shui tools can be used for your interior decor as well as your garden design. Your yard's bagua, or energy map, is an extension of your home’s bagua, so it is important to determine your home’s first.

It is also essential to know the five elements in the theory of feng shui and how best to use each one to make the most of its energy.

Feng shui design calls for the Earth element, for example, to be integrated into the northeastern corner of your garden, as that area connects to self-cultivation and personal development energy. Since rocks epitomize the Earth element in feng shui, you might give some thought to putting some into a serene Zen garden in the northeast corner of your yard.

Southeast (money and abundance), East (health & family), and North (career & path in life) are feng shui areas ideal for a water feature.

Outdoor Water Features: The Perfect Way to Honor a Cherished One

Install a garden fountain in memory of someone who is deceased. A lot of traditional rituals have been done away with in today’s society. Yet most societies even today build memorials to honor their dead. A lot of people put intimate personal items on a memorial to remind them of their cherished one. They come in many shapes and sizes, and backyard garden fountains are really common. You can personalize it in many ways such as including a nameplate, having yearly memorial services around the fountain, planting flowers nearby, or including a framed photo.

Honoring those who have passed away is simple with a garden fountain. Prosperity, achievement, and good fortune all are represented by the flowing water which celebrates the memory of the defunct. In order to last a long time, your garden fountain should be well made, solid, and resistant to changing weather. You want to make sure your garden fountain is going to endure once you get it set up.

Things You Will Need to Have for a Garden Water Feature

A lot of people forget the need for an electrical socket or water source close by when considering where to put their garden fountain. People sometimes forget the technical things because they get caught up in the excitement of putting in their newest purchase. If you need an extension cord to reach a 120v wall socket, feel free to use one, as typical power cords are only 12 feet long. You will need to fill your fountain with water so make sure there is a source of water nearby. It is difficult to move water from one place to another. A nearby garden hose is helpful when time comes to fill the fountain. A water fountain autofill is an even better option, but will require the help of an expert who knows how to set it up since the water has to go through an external line.

How Fountains can be Ideal for the Environment

Are you seeking to adorn your backyard? Well, think about adding elegance and value to your residence by installing a solar powered water fountain. They are the same as electric fountains in that they help with one's overall health but they also offer financial benefits. Despite the high initial price, costs associated with these fountains are worthwhile. You will not have to worry about energy shortages since your fountain will not be driven by electricity.

Running water fountains means that your use of electricity will go up and thus your monthly bill.

Even though short-term expenses might be higher than you had predicted, don't forget that your residence is increasing in value.

Spending more money on our electric bills is not the only downside - the environment is negatively affected too. Solar powered water fountains get their energy straight from the sun thus making them the optimal “green” fountain. Using solar power to run a water feature is not only worthwhile to our environment but it also heats and cools our homes.

Less maintenance is a benefit of adding this kind of fountain. Since these do not run using an electric generator that could clog up with debris, they need little cleaning. And this means more you time!

Wall Water Fountains: A Broad Range of Design Choices

It is easy to find the perfect one as they come in a wide variety of prices and styles. Moreover, you can find either colorful or plain ones that come in a range of sizes. Many people choose these attractive water fountains because they add so much dazzle to their exterior walls. You can even buy more than one fountain for an interesting waterfall sound if you have enough space on your wall.

When it comes time to choosing a garden fountain, there are lots of choices available. First and foremost, you must determine which one to purchase and the best place to put it.
