Mounting of satellite dish - DirecTV

I'm an old Dutchman, 76, and I'm wondering why your company places dishes on roofs. I think your satellites are about 36,000 kilometers outlying the earth. Do you think 5 meters closer will give a better reception?
Why not place them in the garden? I saw a TV-show of your company showing a big garden and an engineer performing unnecessary dangerous movements on a roof AND performing odds for a leaking roof.........
