In order to understand how a Chinese garden creates fortune, we begin first with an understanding of what this ancient art is: Maggie Keswick, author of The Chinese Garden: history, art and architecture, describes Chinese gardens as cosmic diagrams that reveal a profound and ancient view of the world and of man's place in it. The ancient Chinese garden designer constantly evolves his garden through continuous adjustments and additions. These seemingly tiny decisions to rearranging physical spaces are fueled by intellectual capacity, deep understanding of the Taoist balance in nature and mastery of Feng Shui. Garden designers would need to understand the basics of architecture, botany, water management, rock selection, wood furniture selection, history and artwork associated with gardens and the symbolism of each plant. At first glance, a Chinese garden does seem like a complex combination of aesthetically pleasing plants, solid wood furniture and other elements, but for it to be truly complete, it also needs to appear unplanned.
