feng_shui_garden(MCT)—Is your garden calling out to you to do something and you are not sure what to do first? Feng shui practitioner Bonnie Primm of Norfolk, Va., has some simple solutions.

“We all need to start with what we have and some idea of what we want because time and money and the largest piece — energy will always prevail,” she says.

Here are some everyday garden feng shui tips from Bonnie that can be your guide:

1. Begin with balance. Balancing your planting scheme begins with the back of the planting area where you plant higher (yang) than the next layer and again with the third layer in front until you reach three tiers descending in height to lowest (yin) — 3 is a magic number for balance in feng shui. This concept applies when you use property lines as the visual focus; if you plant in spaces away from the property lines, the tallest plants will be in the center — but not too tall or you risk good proportion. Vegetable gardens are done the same way. Mix even more — high/low, open/tight and light/dark within the planting.

2. Incorporate texture. There is also yin and yang in texture. Use open, longer stems, like Shasta daisies that create motion when the wind caresses them. Descend your plantings with seasonal flowers or perennials where the flower heads are more condensed with each layer until you reach rounder, close-flowering plants that group together.
