In order to understand how a Chinese garden creates fortune, we begin first with an understanding of what this ancient art is: Maggie Keswick, author of The Chinese Garden: history, art and architecture, describes Chinese gardens as cosmic diagrams that reveal a profound and ancient view of the world and of man's place in it. The ancient Chinese garden designer constantly evolves his garden through continuous adjustments and additions. These seemingly tiny decisions to rearranging physical spaces are fueled by intellectual capacity, deep understanding of the Taoist balance in nature and mastery of Feng Shui. Garden designers would need to understand the basics of architecture, botany, water management, rock selection, wood furniture selection, history and artwork associated with gardens and the symbolism of each plant. At first glance, a Chinese garden does seem like a complex combination of aesthetically pleasing plants, solid wood furniture and other elements, but for it to be truly complete, it also needs to appear unplanned.

Most people know that Feng Shui translates to ‘wind and water’. It is a form of geomancy, which involves designing spaces to create healthy ‘Qi’ or energy that will attract good fortune. The good news is that even the most basic Feng Shui principles can create conditions to attract some good fortune, but if you want exceptional results, you may want to consult a reputable Feng Shui consultant with Taoist knowledge to check on the almanacs, measure energy and work with designers to plan spaces that generate ‘Qi’ that benefits your family, in accordance to the right time to build and complete construction in accordance to the natural flow of energy.

When designing a Chinese Garden that creates good fortune, one must consider how to balance the yin and yang, which are represented in every element in the garden from the rock, soil, and choice of plants to the water. Stones for one represent ‘yang’, while water represents ‘yin’. A garden that generates good ‘qi’ is one that is balanced with each element of the garden interacting in perfect harmony, with the five elements of fire, earth, metal, water and wood represented flawlessly and in accordance with Taoist cosmology. You can already start to see that a good Feng Shui consultant is as important as a landscape designer.

Ancient Chinese garden owners used a lot of natural materials to design and build their gardens. These requirements may sound intimidating especially if you want to build a garden like the ancient Chinese.
