Where Do I Put What?

In Feng Shui there are general directions guidelines as what elements and specific shapes are best suited in various directions.

In order to take advantage of this knowledge you need to first understand what compass direction your garden falls into. (For those of you who have never used a compass visit our article tab at Blue Avalon and download the instructions!)

Once you have established your compass you can use this general guideline!

NORTH

The sector of Career is well suited for the colours of blue, black, whites, creams and greys. So any array of flowers in these colours is ideal. North is also the water element so birdbaths, water features and symbolic water figures such as fish, or a tortoise all work well, Any ornament in metal - including furniture (in particular a round table) will work nicely as well.

NORTHEAST

The sector of learning & spirituality thrives on metallic colours as well as pinks & yellows! A perfect space for a quiet meditation area and complimented by lights, spiritual figures (Buddha), terracotta pots, rockery, stones, gravel and of course a backyard barbecue!

EAST

The sector of Family & Health always does well surrounded by plenty of green and thrives on tall trees and beautiful bamboo! Any wooden structure, furniture, decking , fencing or trellis helps strengthen this area. An excellent space for a garden dragon!

SOUTHEAST

The sector of wealth, prosperity and abundance thrives in greens and blues. Water features, small evergreens, shrubs or lawn works well. Enrich this area with a frog or fish statue as well!

SOUTH

The sector of Fame & Recognition this area thrives in a sea of red, orange and purple flowers! Add plenty of patio or garden lights and keep this area well lit! Another great area to put your barbecue. Symbolic birds or roosters are good here as well.

SOUTHWEST

The sector of relationships & romance is strengthened with the use of reds, pinks and yellows. A beautiful place for a hidden garden using earth, stone and metal ornaments. Use symbolic paired statues of lovers or birds.

WEST

The sector of Children & creativity is ideal for using metallic of silver, gold and bronze. Clean fresh whites can blend easily with pinks and yellows as well. Fragrant flowers are best!

NORTHWEST

The sector of helpful people encourages colours similar to the west so use white, and metallic and enhance the area with cobblestones, gravel and symbolic items of protectors or warriors!
