Hillsides. Are they good or not? The truth is, it depends how close the next structure (house/hill/trees) is to your house. For optimal health, wealth and prosperity we need protection on each side of us, in front and behind us. In Feng Shui this represents the celestial animals: white tiger = right side of property, green dragon = left side of property, phoenix in front of property, and tortoise behind property. These celestial animals protect the house and occupants.
