Thinking of a Roof Top Gardens

20150801_140029-1

5 Element Theory is a philosophy based upon connection with nature and a perspective that nature includes both natural elements and their cultural meanings. With this in mind a roof top garden is situated on the top of an image of ones head.  In the design of a building the windows are the eyes and the door is the door and the foundation are the feet.  Therefore the top or roof of the building is the loftier function of achievement and intelligence.

Garden plants and colors are in the element of wood which supports the element of fire.  Fire is a favorable roof element.   However, earth drains fire!  Too much earth will drain the energy out of the fire element and water will extinguish it.

A roof top garden should be one that does not need much watering or hold standing water.  Ideally it would be one that is inviting to come out onto the roof to sit and enjoy alone or gather in groups.  Keep in mind that any sitting areas would be enhanced by adding a roof, ie. umbrella over tables.

One exception could be the roof top garden on top of Fenway Stadium that is supplying the food vendors at the stadium with fresh greens.  The stadium now sells only healthy foods made from this garden replacing the greasy fat foods previously sold  This is a fundamental educative experience!

5 ELEMENT NOTES ON ROOFING MATERIALS

Color and material are important when it comes to choosing roofing materials.

Fire Element:

This element is considered auspicious for a roof, however the connect to earth and nature is a primary focus.  Natural Eco-friendly materials are available in Wood and Earth Elements may be considered over artificial paints and stains in the fire category.  This includes; orange, purple, red, pink, gold and the bright yellow spectrum.

Wood Element:

Wood Elements support fire which symbolizes stimulating wealth so wood elements are the first choice.  This could be cedar roof shingles that are natural and  eco-friendly or simply painted green or brown which represents the color of wood!  This may also include Living Gardens with a specific purpose – read more.

Earth Element:

Roofing materials such as  natural tiles and slate show  the earth element which would be second choice after the wood element.  These can be the earth tones of reds, yellows, sands and browns. The earth element is the balance of yin & yang.  

Metal Element:  An unfavorable choice are materials in the metal element such as metal roofing materials.   It is only recommended only for garages and garden sheds.  The color of metal is white and grey.  Metal creates water and this is the element that is not highly recommended in roofing materials.  

Water Element:  Black and blue reflects the color of water.  This is not a favored color for a roof as it represents draining away like a waterfall into the earth.  This can show loss of  physical, emotional and mental strength.  Those with lower constitutions do not achieve success and create the lives they dream of.

Favorable and Not so Favorable Roof Styles

Considering architecture is important for creating harmony as it is a silent stimulus to ones well-being.    The levels in the design of a building reflect elements in all living things;  grounded at the base and rising upwards to the heaven.  A building foundation and basement are the roots, the mid-section is the function and the higher you go the loftier the function!  This includes the style and material of roof that tops the home or building!  The philosophy is the roof can bring good fortune as well as be visually pleasing and functional.  It protects the building and those inside from the elements.   

A favorable roof is an attractive one.  Therefore color, materials, and style matter.  When deciding on a roof design remember that symmetrical roofs and exteriors can increase abundance  and is considered lucky with all things money. A rectangular and sloping roof design signifies determination, perseverance, greater communication and wisdom.

Two types of corner edges to consider when choosing a roof style are:  

  • Rounded Corner Edges

The favored roof is one that has rounded edges versus sharp corners.  Rounded edges show no beginning and no end – infinity.  The edges also soften and show a softer flow.  

  • Sharp Corner Edges 

Sharp corners show the need for protection inside the home or business from exterior danger.  

5 element notes on roof styles:

  • Pyramid,  Tepee, & roofs facing the 4 Cardinal Directions

Church-of-Truth-003-300x225This style of roof is a great conductor of sound and rises up to the heavens.  It is a design often seen in spiritual centers, churches and spaces for contemplative arts.


  • Symmetrical, Gable & Hip Roofs – Fire element

20150706_180348-2

Symmetrical Triangles reflect the symbol of fire and in balance it contributes to igniting wealth.  If the roof is in symmetry with the remaining exterior and landscape it is a greater influence to  the effects of abundance.  


  • Oval Roofs – Metal Element

BeFunky Collage Language of Nature - Metal-RockMetal is not considered a good element for homes and  this style of roof is favored for industrial and sports complexes, and not so much in homes.   


  • Flat – Earth on Vertical Buildings and Wood on Horizontal Buildings

20150723_200304-2Flat roofs are an unfavorable design for buildings under 4 levels  as they are considered to be unbalanced and unlucky.  An example is in areas of great snowfall – these roofs are difficult to clear and can collapse under the weight of the snow!  In storms water can collect without good drainage representing stagnant water.  


  • Sunken or Caved In Roofs

These are unfavorable shape as they have negative effects on relationships between families, especially between parents and their children. They are disharmonious and  show  discord.


  • Roof Top Gardens – Earth and Wood Elements

Screenshot_2015-08-05-17-32-50It is interesting that  in traditional feng shui 5 element theory it is good luck to paint your roof top green to reflect a wood element which supports the fire element .  Fire stimulates finances! However if one is planting a roof top garden consideration must be given to water features and spaciousness of the plantings.  After all, water puts fire out, rushing water is draining and stagnant water is lethargy!  Philosophically, it also represents moving earth to heaven.  Heaven is loftier action while earth is grounding and settling.    Read more on Roof Top garden

More about Yellow in Design

Yellow

InYellow China yellow was the color of the emperor as it depicted the center of the universe and it is often used to contrast black to complement the yin and yang of these two colors.  Their theory is yellow arises out of black as earth arises out of the dark waters, yin and yang.

Common psychological effects are of hope and optimism.  It is a warming and stimulating color that often is associated with happiness and drawing out intellect.  A mid-range yellow palette  supports grounding and stability.

In 5 element theory the palette of yellow has a range considered the fire element and a range considered the earth element.  The fire element of yellows range from bright yellow to the gold of the emperors cloths while the earth range is light yellow and ochre shades of yellow.

The palette range of yellow has different cultural associations, such as dark yellows the color of the sun and happiness and the shade of sulfur as deceitful and evil.    Therefore it is important that in your home or business that the palette chosen is one that is appealing to you!

Best room placements for painting yellow in your home or office:

  • It is an appetizing color that represents fertility, abundance and richness making it a great color choice for the kitchen.
  • It stimulates conversation  and socialization making it a great choice for rooms designed for gatherings; waiting rooms, foyers, living rooms, dining rooms, dens, open group offices and meeting rooms.  (May not be the best choice for bedrooms and private working spaces!)

Wearing yellow:

There are two palette choices wearing yellow;  the sun yellows in the fire element and the ochre yellows in the earth element.

  • Fire Element

In the 5 element nurturing cycle wearing the yellows in the fire element can be accented by the greens and browns in the wood element.   The yellows of the fire element can also be worn to accent the earth palette.
