Try something new this year that will create and promote a peaceful environment for you and your family.

If you’re looking to create a more positive living environment for you and your family you might want to try Feng Shui. Feng Shui is a Chinese belief that “a system of laws govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy.” Here are a couple of tips on how to Feng Shui your backyard.

1.) The first thing you must do is protect your yard from negative environmental impacts. This can be done through natural barriers that can double for both privacy and protection for your backyard area. These natural barriers can reduce noise, winds, and air pollution.

2.) Your backyard should have a feeling of security and comfort. Large rocks, stone walls, and fences can be both used as attractive and functional barriers for your yard. Take a look at to find vinyl and aluminum fences that might help you meet these needs.

3.) A part of Feng Shui is the belief of the energy flow Qi. In order to achieve this you need to create open spaces. This will allow the free flow of life force to move across your yard.

4.) Make sure to have an open area around the front of the house to allow the Qi energy flow to bring positive changes. One way of doing this is by making sure you aren’t planting large trees close to the front door. The front of your home should be simple, open and welcoming to your guests.

5.) Water elements are an important part of Feng Shui because they attract Chi energy. Chi energy is believed to bring money and prosperity to the home and water also doubles as a sign of wealth. You can create water elements in your backyard through ponds, fountains, waterfalls, and swimming pools. If you choose to install a pool make sure you protect it by purchasing a fence to put around it.

6.) To achieve complete Feng Shui you must have three elements in your backyard: water, rocks, and plants.
