House and all luxorius things are dead in nature, it becomes lively only with live things like plants and human beings. Plants and human-being both are lively and closely connected with each other. Plants have got the magical power to cure all our problems whether financial, mental or health related.
Vastu shastra or the science of vastu is related to building of house and plot of land. The Lord of this science is Brahma and it tells us the precautions which should be taken while building the house and it what way the plot of land should be used. It is said that vastu shashtra prevents many problems that a house owner may face. This may be in the form of physical or mental disease. This is called Vastu dosh (difficulties as a result of vastu).
To prevent vastu dosh trees and plants are used. Our sages have given solutions to each problem. The type of plants which should be planted in a household is written in our literature.
