Garden is an integral part of the house and its condition has a direct impact on the house and its residents. Imagine a house which is surrounded by an unkempt garden. The house loses its beauty and the residents too feel low and disheartened. On the other hand a house surrounded by a well kept garden enhances the beauty of the house and the residents too feel cheerful and energetic. Water feature in the garden has its own aesthetic value. Sometimes it is difficult to decide about the location of the fountain in the garden .Fengshui outlines basic rules for this and makes it easier to install the water feature.
First and foremost is to know the bagua of the garden. Once the directions are clear locate the fountain in the East, North East and North of the garden as you know that these are the directions which are best suited for the water element.
Flow of the water should be towards the entrance of the house. Water element is a powerful representative of growth and abundance. Its flow towards the house is hence symbolic of prosperity reaching your doorstep.
For some reason if you have to place the water feature in the South or the West it can be intertwined with the shape, colour or the element specific to this direction. For example if you have to place the water feature in the South which is the direction for the fire element, use red ,pink, or crimson colour in the water feature. You could also take triangular water feature because triangle is the shape specific for this direction.
Query:- Where should a tortoise be placed in the garden?
Answer:- Tortoise is one of the four celestial animals in Fengshui. It is used to bring in health, stability, protection and prosperity to life. A tortoise made of metal or black in colour can be placed in the North of the garden, where it helps to promote growth in the career. Tortoise placed in the West encourages grounding energy and stability in life. Tortoise facing the main door is always a good choice. Health benefits can be gained by placing a green colour tortoise in the East.
