End-of-drought – fun times ahead (contact quality Alberton Architects)
For Gauteng residents in particular, the relaxation of water restrictions brings a huge wave of relief and a freedom now to go ahead with garden projects that had to be put on hold during the times of drought. Alberton Architects and landscapers are bracing themselves for a flood of enquiries as home owners plot and plan! The popular trend at present is to add water features to the entrance area of houses, apartment and office blocks. These water features include fountains, small ponds with water flowing gently over rocks or stones or larger ones giving home to koi fish and water plants.
Alberton Architects become Feng Shui experts:
Alberton Architects follow Feng Shui principles when designing the best place to position water features, ponds and fountains. Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment. Water represents wealth in Feng Shui and according to Feng Shui principles it’s advantageous to place a water element such as a fountain near the entry of your home. It can be just inside or just outside, but the most important part is that the water should be flowing towards the centre of your home. That means that the wealth has the opportunity to pour into your life! Literally translated into English as “wind-water,” Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophy that uses energy forces to create a more favourable layout for a home or office orientation.
Some other Feng Shui tips to bring positivity into your home or office include always using the front door, fixing all squeaking doors especially the front door; placing plants above the kitchen counter; keeping the bathroom door closed; placing your bed facing the door; covering the TV in the bedroom; cleaning all windows and doing a space clearing.
