DO you know that Feng Shui also applies to your garden and not just your home or office? Feng Shui experts recommend that you build a garden in your house for positive energy.
If you live in an apartment which has a balcony, you can turn that space into a miniature garden. If you don’t have a balcony, then the other alternative is to place small flowering pots in the kitchen, or in the corner of your living room together with a few green plants. Make sure you select an area in your house that gets adequate sunlight for the plants to undergo photosynthesis.
If you live in a landed property, make full use of the outside space. But be sure to check which flowers or plants that are most suitable for your environment. There are also lots of information on the Internet for the best Feng Shui plants for your home.
According to www.thespruce.com, Feng Shui can help boost energy in any space. A well-maintained garden with beautiful flowering plants would create vibrant Feng Shui energy, as well as neutralise bad energy before it enters your house.
