In ancient times, there was a saying that "before the rosefinch, after the Xuanwu, left Qinglong, right Baihu". The ancients thought that "before the omen, after the lean, left embracing and right embracing" Feng Shui was good feng shui. The omen refers to the river, that is, the "jade belt wrapped around the waist" mentioned earlier, and the latter means that there must be a mountain behind the house. Only with a mountain can the foundation be stable. Most villas have a courtyard in front of the door, so it is difficult to build rockery behind the villa. Wang Haohua pointed out that when buying a villa, even if the courtyard is in the front, try to choose one with a certain space behind the house.
Many people like to put rockery in the middle of the pool to achieve the purpose of harmonious landscape, but if the rockery is too high, it is not good for the health of the owner. The height of rockery should not be more than one meter, and the material is Taishan stone.
Having a mountain is a good thing, but if the location is not right, it will have the opposite effect. It's better to get to the point than not having a mountain. In a villa project in the Asian Olympic plate, in order to protect the privacy of the villa, a high rockery is built on the outside to completely block the villa. "Going out to see the mountain" is a taboo in geomantic omen.
The development of modern Chinese courtyard rockery waterscape is most prominent only in Huizhou style. It is the most novel. While inheriting the essence of traditional Huizhou architecture, it pays more attention to the value of modern life. For example, the design takes more consideration of the privacy of residents, enhances ventilation and lighting, and improves the comfort of housing. Later, people used the Huizhou style to skillfully combine the stone mountain waterscape, highlighting the simplicity and beauty of modern Chinese courtyard.
