A good Fengshui master can learn from the practice of Fen,gshui about the height of the main mountain, the distance of the nearby mountain and distant mountain, the encirclement status of mountains on both sides, and the flowing direction of the water. In turn, when a burial place is selected, all the factors mentioned above should be taken into consideration in the decoration and building of the architecture. Of course, all architectures should be in appropriate size so as to match with rivers and mountains and blend with nature. Thus, man and nature can be in a harmonious unity and as soon as you see the tomb, you know about its surrounding environment. 
In the eyes of a Fengshui master, the ideal place of excellent Fengshui has the main mountain at back and is surrounded by mountains and waters. The main mountain should have abundant Qi with its source far into the distance.
