  • Vastu Shastra has its origin in Atharva Veda and that is our main scripture source for this. The principles of Vastu Shastra are basically based on the diurnal position of sun and its rays.

    As per the Vastu Shastra the different directions around the house are attributed to different basic elements as follows -
    1. South-West side determines Earth.
    2. North-East represents water.
    3. South-East is attributable to fire.
    4. North-West represents air.

    While planting the trees and plants due care is to be given to these elements. Some of the considerations are like -
    a) Tall trees are to be planted along the boundary wall at a good distance from the house in the West, South and South-West directions. Vastru Shastra says that their shadow should not fall on the house in day hours from 9 AM to 3 PM.
    b) Tulsi plant is having positive vibes and should be planted in North, East and North-East directions.
    c) Small plants and shrubs are preferably to be planted in the East or North Sections.
    d) Cactus or thorny plants are to be avoided as they have negative energy.
    e) Flower pots should be placed on the ground and not on the compound wall. Preferred directions are North, East or North-East.
    f) Water bodies like mini pool, pond, mini water fall etc are to be constructed in East or North direction. These water bodies bring mental peace.
    g) Vastu Shastra recommends placing a swing in the garden in a North-South axis.
    h) Peepal tree should be planted at a good distance from the house as its roots can harm the house.
    i) If benches or siting space is to be provided then it is suggested to put them in such a way that people sitting on them should face to East or West.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Planting trees on this planet is a very pious issue. We should not stop planting trees. At the same time, I request all not to cut trees in the name of Vastu. Trees all around the house give us fresh air and keep pollution away. The green trees will help us in increasing positive thoughts and gives us peace of mind.

    Trees will give attraction to the house. They make the land cool and brings a good look to the area. They will help reduce greenhouse gases. That will give us good health and wealth also.

    We should keep a good gap between the two trees and also the distance between the walls of the house and compound wall.

    As per Vastu, one should keep more open space towards North and East. The open place should be less towards South and West directions. When we plant trees we should keep this point in mind. It is better to plant trees on the west side and south side of the houses. Plants which are heavy and tall should be on the southwest side.
    We can have plants on northeast also but they should be light and less length than the plants what we have on the southwest. The distance from the compound wall to the trees should be more than what we have on southwest. You should not have plants on northeast if you don't have plants on the southwest corner. Small plants can be there on the north side.

    always confident

  • Trees or greenery not only add beauty to the house or surrounding, but it also provides clean and fresh oxygen. Vastu Shastra believes that the trees help to balance the flow of positive energy, bring prosperity and wealth. When we follow the Vastu Shastra principle while planting trees or doing gardening, it will help us to control our mood, bring fortune and good health.

    Vastu Shastra believes that every garden impersonates one of the five elements of Panch Bhoota i.e. Prithvi or earth, Jal or water, Agni or fire, Vayu or wind and, space. Each direction and the elements that it resembles are:
    i) The north-east direction represents water
    ii) The north-west represents air
    iii) The south-east represents fire
    iv) The south-west represents earth
    v) The centre represents space

    Trees to be planted as per the directions are:-
    a) In the North direction: This is a very favourable direction. You can plant a 'Tulsi' or 'Holy Basil' in the centre. Note that you plant only small plants and plant without thorns in this direction. The only exception is for the Rose. You can add a water fountain to highlight beauty but avoid rock or rock paintings in this direction.

    b) In the South direction: Vastu Shastra advice this portion to be left free as it does not encourage the flow of water source in this direction. If you want to plant than try hanging type pots or plants that require less water.

    c) In the East direction: This direction is ideal for kitchen gardening and can plant fruit plants, vegetable plants or the plants that bring prosperity, fortune or wealth like the money plant, etc.

    d) In the West direction: This direction can be used to plant big or tall trees but should be planted at a distance from the house. You can even use rocks or statues to enhance its beauty. Trees like Mango, Chickoo, Jackfruit, banana, etc can be planted in this area.

    Some trees or plant that can be planted for prosperity, wealth and good health are:
    i) Money plant - This is considered to be lucky and brings in the growth of wealth or income. Care has to be taken that it does not dry-up as it is considered unlucky. You can either plant it in the East or North direction.
    ii) Banana tree - This plant is considered sacred and symbolizes health and mental peace. You can plant it in the North-East direction.
    iii) Coconut Tree - Coconut represents purity and growth and brings happiness. You can plant it near the boundary at a long distance from the house. You can plant it on the South or West of your garden.
    iv) Neem tree - It has medicinal properties and capacity to create positive energy. It is very useful and has health benefits. You can either plant it in the North-West direction.
    v) Mango tree - As mango has much medicinal value, used as a pesticide and puja purposes, you can plant it on the East direction of the garden.
    vi) Flower pots - flower pots or plants in the pot should not be taller than 3-feet or 1-meter height and placed on the wall or compound in North, East or North-East directions. Pots smaller than 3-feet or 1-meter height can be placed on the ground in the said direction. This is to allow morning sunlight to come in from theses direction.

    Some more tips to follow while planting trees or making a garden as per Vastu Shastra are:
    1. Always remember to plant trees in even numbers like 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, etc.
    2. Always plant fruit or vegetable plants on the East side of the garden.
    3. Never plant a tree in the middle of your gate or door as it blocks the flow of energy.
    4. Bonsai plants symbolize slow down or hinder development. Hence avoid all kinds of bonsai plants.
    5. Never plant taller growing trees on the North, East and North-East directions. The trees on the said side should not grow taller than the roof of the house.
    6. Any type of tall trees can be planted in the South-West direction as it will bring safety and growth.
    7. Avoid planting thorny plants or trees in your garden as it creates an argument and brings division except for Rose.
    8. Never keep a dry or dead plant or tree with no leaf in front of the house as it brings bad luck. Either cut it down or take care of it.
    9. Creepers can be grown in the garden or entrance by providing separate support for each creeper. Also, ensure that the creeper does not grow beyond your compound wall.
    10. Orchid symbolizes love, fertility and children. It also provides higher growth, perfection and prosperity in one's lives thus growing it in your garden is very helpful.
