Our environment affect us, not least gardens. By practising the ancient Chinese art feng shui, one could find tools how to create harmony and balance in gardens. By paying attention to different energies working with colours, shapes and materials one can create a nice garden with good feng shui. The philosophy, however, includes much more than what plants or what hard materials to choose in the garden. It describes different energies, the movement of energies, which we can learn to live in harmony with. A feng shui-garden consists of different ingredients which all work together. It is important to find a balance between yin and yang and the different elements wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Harmony and balance are two keywords which is important when one work with feng shui in gardens. The aim of this work is to find out what tools one can work with to create a good feng shui-garden. The thesis consists of a literature study which concludes how the principle of feng shui works in gardens.
