Vaastu Shastra for Gardens

Vastu Shastra  is an environmental science which observes the workings of natural forces and records how magnetic poles, sun rays, and land compositions influence living things. As per the primitive system of vastu for garden, it’s important for the five basic elements to work in harmony to enable the seeds to germinate, develop and grow healthily. Imbalance of any element, whether soil (earth), sun (fire), wind (air), water or space, will slow down the development and may even lead to irreversible damage.

As a general rule, a garden must be in the North or West side and inside the borders of the compound.
