Designing Your Garden With Wood Feng Shui

Garden design with wood element

Wood is one of the easiest elements to work in a feng shui garden. The element should appear naturally in your yard. Wood is about youthful energy, new beginnings, plants and greenery.

A garden based around feng shui must balance all five elements. You want a balanced garden because a garden that focuses on one element will inevitably be overpowered. There are five elements: wood, metal fire, earth, and water.

The wooded area of your garden should not have a lot of mineral features. Metal is considered destructive to wood. Think of an ax that chops down a tree.

On the other hand, water nourishes wood. Must have watery qualities with woody qualities. Wood also supports fire, so wood can be close to fire. (But don't put too many wooden features around the fire unless you want a blazing fire.)

The wood element is found in:

Trees, flowers, vegetables, fruits, shrubs and mushrooms.
green color.
Vertical pieces, especially columns.
young items.
Art is dedicated to rabbits and tigers.
Woodwork and decoration.
Wooden bridges.
Wood is the new yang energy. Spring encourages activity and bright colors.
Wood spaces should encourage cardio movement and activity.

Principles of yin and yang

Everything around us is made of chemicals and chemical reactions. Part of feng shui is to arrange the elements in a way that they interact with each other to create positive chi. You don't want your wood items to deteriorate, metal to rust, water to discolor, etc.

One thing to keep in mind to help you create a sustainable garden is that things change slowly, not suddenly. Night is yin and day is yang. We have sunrise and sunset between these two events. At sunrise and sunset, both day and night occur. We need a transition. If we suddenly switched from day to night, it would be annoying. (Sudden change is associated with sadness.)

Those midpoints - sunrise and sunset - are terraces. These are your integration points. These are places where you can mix two different types. You don't want to go from wood to metal right away: go slowly from wood to water to metal.

Knowing how to blend slowly and move from one place to another. This will help bring the garden back to life. Your garden will then work on a subconscious level to create pleasure.

Best locations for Wood Feng Shui

Growing evergreens can help you stay green all year long. Chloroplasts in plants are active and healthy in the spring and summer, but the plants lose their green color in the fall.

The best areas in your garden for woody characteristics are east, south, south, and north locations.


Jain Bajwa in the East. It represents family and new beginnings. The primary colors for this area should be green, blue, and blue. You want a dynamic amount of spring energy here: it has to be yang wood. Add objects in groups of three to this area. The number three represents a new young family.

Plants are everywhere. Think of a rainforest or jungle.
Support the space with water elements.
Include a family art representative. Add places where people can sit, preferably long, rectangular benches.
Add columns, columns, and columns representing the continuity of generations.
Add trees to this space.
Add wood trim or furnishings.
The purpose of this space is to remind you to support your family. For young families, this means thinking about newborns. For older families, this space is about thinking about grandchildren and distant great-grandchildren.

For the individual without a family, space means thinking about the continuity of nature and your role in moving life forward with your actions. Even if you are celibate, you still have an influence on the flora and fauna around you.

Zhen is also dedicated to new beginnings, including: new moves, new publishing deals, new homes, new cities, and new school routes.


This is the southeast corner of your garden. Wood in this space represents wealth and abundance. Xun Yin is the location of wood energy. This space should contain green and purple elements. It is a place where water and wood meet and flow.

In Chinese tradition, water is associated with wealth. Compare water flow to cash flow.
Through an abundance of water, you can get an abundance of wood. This is important because we need the element wood for food, for nutrients, for furniture, for color, and mainly for life.
With water, you have the power to harvest. With money, you have more leverage for your choices.
In Xun, add columns and other vertical objects to represent prosperity. This place is also for self-esteem and generosity. This is a place for sapphire or purple jewelry. Marigolds are a beautiful plant that grows in this area.

Xun Yin symbolizes wood energy. It must represent youth and serenity. Add figurines of rabbits and other cute and cuddly animals to the area.

Your Place

This area of fire. This is the southern part of your garden. It should be for the fire element, but you can use wood to support this space. Add sticks and other wooden features. Make green the background as red can pop and bold can pop. Le Baigua for fame and fortune. This is the place for your home charisma.

Add wooden triangles.
Add flowers with green stems and red petals.
Put the wood in this space.
Use the wooden bridge or path to reach this place.
Wooden fence.
Wooden benches.
The northern space is dedicated to water. Water nourishes wood. Add deep wooden objects to the area to connect it to the water. Black and blue are the main colors of water.

The ear represents your path in career. This place is for the winter. Shapes should be wavy or curved. This space needs to be supported by metal elements, so it's wise to keep wood features separate from metal.

Add circular wooden elements.
Circular wooden bridge.
Flowers with green stems and blue or black petals.
Wooden stairs lead down.
Add green, blue and black figurines.

Green Plants

Green is the easiest color to add to your garden. Green should already be there when you start designing your patio. Green is also a popular color for flowers, trees, shrubs, vegetables, and fruits.

I like to encourage planting plants that love water and sunlight in your woodland element space. The Wood element is supported by Water. You want plants that can handle soggy soil. Succulents and cacti are most associated with the fire element.

Pergolas and trellises made of wood are ideal for the spring season.These two types of garden features are supported by tall, upright, and climbing green plants. I would encourage adding multiple trellises and pergolas to your garden for this reason. The space should be fairly fresh, so there should be vining plants, climbing plants, and a healthy amount of chloroplasts.

Add evergreens to your garden to maintain color all year round. Maintaining green vigor during the fall and winter can be challenging. Greenhouses are another way to grow green plants and preserve the wood element.

Wood spaces should feel like an explosion of youth and health. The place might remind you of Saint Patrick's Day.

Citrus fruits have spring energy in feng shui.
Avoid adding companion plants for fall and winter, such as pumpkins, squash, and corn.
Cut the grass. Make sure that the wooden elements do not destroy or enter the earth element space.
Remove dead plants and rotting trees. You don't want pieces that are hollow, rotten, or termite-infested.
Plants should smell healthy.
Plants must invite wildlife. Find ways to get along with the wildlife in your area.
Keep unwanted insects away from fruits and vegetables.

Green represents the heart chakra.

Green is considered a healing color in many different cultures. The heart is one of the most important centers of the body. In chakra balance, it is midway between the root chakra at the top of the head and your crown chakra.

In feng shui, the woody spaces in your garden should nurture your heart and life. You want to get in touch with your feelings and thoughts about your family and nourish your body with healthy botanicals. Wood placements in your garden should be based on the natural elements. You don't want to overwhelm the space with artificial things that are harsh on the environment. (as preservatives are more difficult for your body to process)

Wood represents yang energy. Yang is associated with heart disease. A woody space will make you feel energized, alert, and happy.
You want wooden spaces to promote meditation and exercise.
Planks are ideal for balancing bikes.
You want oxygen in your lungs. The Wood element helps provide you with oxygen. Plants are generous in providing you with oxygen.
You want the wood space to work on all five sensory levels to nourish your heart.

A feng shui garden should be easy on the eyes. Surrounding yourself with the green colors of nature is good for your brain. It makes you feel down to earth and like you're in the right place at the right time.
The wooden space should contain sounds that are pleasing to the ears. The rustle of grass, the birds on the trees, the sound of rain on the leaves, the circling of spring water. Want to reduce noise from the city or neighbors?
The place must have plants that provide food. You want to eat ripe tomatoes and sweet apples. Want to taste nature?
The wood area should be textured. You can climb the trees, enjoy touching the plants and laying on the grass is very relaxing.
The smell of the place should be soothing. The scent of your garden space should be natural, unlike the many odors and molecules we surround ourselves with in our homes, schools, offices, and religious buildings. Want to bring nature to your nose?

Add the bunny and lion statues.

In the Chinese zodiac, the rabbit and tiger represent the element of spring and wood. Tigers advance the seasons and are considered yang wood energy. The rabbit follows the tiger. It is considered the energy of yin wood.

The Tiger ranks third in terms of money, and the Rabbit ranks fourth. Adding these two animal statues can make your garden look like a wooden element. The Tiger and the Rabbit are considered guardians of spring and protectors. Their worship should not be considered gods or gods.

As the legend goes, the tiger and the rabbit used different tactics to reach the end of the Jade Emperor's race. Select the breed Arrangement of animals in the zodiac.

The tiger used its speed to reach the end of the race, but it didn't get up like the bull to beat it. The clever rat jumps off the vine just in time to reach the end, winning first place. Bunny used persistence, perseverance and hard work to reach fourth place. Bunny surprised everyone by getting such a big position. Defeat many other fast animals like dragon and horse.

The tiger reminds us of the charge of the afterlife. Tigers should be added to spaces to remind us to be active, enthusiastic, and have a healthy attitude in life. In China, tigers are considered guardians of children.

Rabbits should be included in spaces to remind you to persevere, be alert, and focus. The Rabbit in the Zodiac knows very well that with discipline she can create a lasting and meaningful legacy.

I recommend adding green animal sculptures.
The wood carvings are a plus.
Add tiger art to the energy of yang wood.
Add rabbit art to woody yin energy.

Additional tips

Don't let the branches touch your house. Even though you want trees to grow, you must prune them back from your home. Trees too close to your home bring bad luck.
Curved or winding paths are ideal for feng shui gardens. In traditional Chinese folklore, only demons can walk the straight path. Curves help add dimension, whimsy, and charm. It's easier to see all of your plants when you put them in curves rather than neat lines.
A feng shui garden should feel meditative, calm, and invigorating. When you feel peaceful and in balance, your garden is in equilibrium.
The garden should not be neglected. He needs to work on it constantly. There are always tasks in front of you, which are to clear bushes, remove decaying items, get rid of rusty tools, and remove debris. You, as a gardener, must take care of your space rather than letting it wild and empty.
Sometimes a destructive factor is necessary. For example, if the Wood element is high, you may have very tall grass, weeds, poison ivy, annoying thistles, and plenty of shade. Use metal to cut wood. Use metal objects to prevent excessive wood growth.
