5.0 out of 5 stars Feng Shui in the Garden is a treat for all November 16, 1998
By A Customer
Feng Shui in the Garden is a great book for either the feng shui savvy or the novice. Easy to understand explanation about feng shui and soul provoking ideas for the garden make this a "best buy". Ms. Wydra presents a mini encyclopedia on vegetation that transcends the norm by including the implications of color, shape and symbolic meaning of plants and trees. The reader also learns how to create speciality gardens to include a power garden, a lover's garden, a meditation garden and a healing garden plus more. She continuously connects all of this with the Ba-Gua, a feng shui roadmap for life. What I especially like about this book is the simplicity of the garden designs - nothing seems overwhelming. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Provides a new way to analyze your garden. April 14, 1999
By A Customer
I recommend this book if you are looking for a new approach to what might be called the garden metaphor. This book provides wonderful definitions of the garden and the importance of place, but also gives practical ways to analyze faults as well as checklists and questions to help gardeners pinpoint where they might want to go. I found it helped to diagnose my problem areas and also pointed to some not so radical solutions that changed emphasis just enough to give my garden a whole new look. I highly recomment it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can create your own feng shui garden December 19, 2000
I followed the guidelines for plants, color, fragrance, shapes,and meaning, and designed five interlocking Florida feng shui gardens based on Nancilee's book. We used the bagua to locate the right spots (for us) for a Meditation garden, a Healing garden, a Fertility garden, a Child's garden and, in the Power Corner, the Lover's garden.
The result is a tropical paradise which enchants us, our friends, and garden enthusiasts. The book was a great guide to learning by doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book! December 28, 2006
I really like this book. It gives suggestions for gardens made to improve one's life. I made a miniture 3x3 foot version of the 'Power Garden' and loved it! This book has some good illustrations. There were no photo examples but I will still rate it a 5 because it has some great information regarding the bagua, the meanings of color and meanings of shapes in Feng Shui, the different types gardens (i.e. Meditation Garden, Lover's Garden, Children's Garden, etc) and many helpful tips. This is a fairly basic book that someone will understand even if they know little or nothing about Feng Shui. This is a cheerful and fun book, with none of the superstition, none of the complicated ceremonies, or number calculations like other Feng Shui books I have read. I own this book and will read it again once I am ready to plant a garden in my new place!
