Garden Design, Feng Shui and the Use of Buddhas in the Garden

Increasingly in the West we are turning to eastern philosophy and wisdom to try to bring a greater sense of calm and purpose to our lives. Our gardens and natural spaces plays a key part in centering and calming the self in what is an increasingly unnatural world.

The ancient practice of Feng Shui has entered western design as a way to construct spaces that have harmony and intrinsic purpose. Nowhere can Feng Shui be more useful than in the design,planting and in the harmonious application of creating a garden.

At the Buddha's Face as part of our Buddhism 101 Project we have written an article which briefly describes the history of Feng Shui and its use and application in modern garden design.
