The whole buildings and gardens

has been built on the principles

of the Feng-Shui of the Garden.

The origins of the Feng-Shui go back up to the antiquity. It seems that it is the oldest Art of the garden known in the world. The oldest texts date from the dynasty Tang. These classic texts containing numerous knowledge and secrets were exclusively reserved for the Emperor and for his family as well for the Chinese ruling classes.

Since that time, Feng-Shui is considered a “technique” for the identification of the most favorable sites. One of the greatest Feng-Shui Masters was Wang Yun Sang “founder” of the Feng-Shui of the Form, currently named School of Landscape.

His theories were based primarily on the method to follow in order to detect the beneficial dragon in quite unlikely places. The dragon’s breath was of major importance for him because it predetermines the quality of well-being of a dwelling. Master Yang walked the country side with assiduity to identify locations and formation fields eligible for this breath that he called cosmic and he placed at the heart of Feng-Shui. Its main theories have been the foundation of the school of the Form and Landscape.

Since the twentieth century, Feng-Shui has become “completely” accessible. These principles are: all human beings should live in harmony will all nature and all existent things is impregnated with invisible energy (“Chi”). Man, to be happy and healthy, must learn to cultivate this energy of high vibrational energy not only on his own home but also around it, taking care of the landscape that is entrusted to him.

Armed with this education, it remains for us to be attentive to our Mother Nature and follow our deepest intuitions.

We find the principles and teachings of Feng-Shui in all our most ancients traditions and teachings no matter what our original culture is. Most of us become too urban and lacks this vital connection to the land and nature. Hence the current craze for Feng-Shui. Therefore Feng-Shui is not governed by a fashion but is a real vital need. It was always there and it always will be no matter what new trends are.



May the breath of the Dragon always accompany you smoothly on your way of life!

Living Art and Feng-Shui in our gardens


Why do well-known landscapers today propose to integrate the teachings of Feng-Shui into our gardens?
There is only one answer: The Wellness!
Not that Feng-Shui has the prerogative, but simply that these principles applied by specialists make it possible to increase the positive energy of a place. Placements of entrance, walkways, trees, water and stones are essential.
Then come all the other criteria: fittings, colors, shapes, materials…




Great names of the garden invite us with natural elegance :
