 1. Inspirational flowers

Floriade gardens are a testament to the beauty of nature and the art of landscaping. They offer a great source of inspiration for homeowners who want to enhance the curb appeal of their property. From vibrant tulips to elegant roses, these gardens showcase a rich palette of colours and textures that can translate into stunning flowerbeds, lush, lawns and striking facades.

2. Year-round beauty

Although Floriade is a seasonal event, its impact on street appeal can last year-round. Planting a variety of flowers and shrubs that bloom at different times of the year can ensure that your property maintains its appeal throughout the seasons. Like here at 10 Breona Place, Lyons, where the contrasting hedge of the lawn is an absolute eye-catcher.

3. Landscaping expertise

Floriade gardens are the result of meticulous planning and landscaping expertise. To achieve a similar level of curb appeal, homeowners can enlist the help of professional landscapers to transform their outdoor spaces into works of art. The possibilities are endless: create a symmetrical garden, install decorative pathways, or incorporate water features.

4. Sustainable beauty

One of Floriade’s core principles is sustainability. The festival promotes environmentally-friendly gardening practices and shows how beautiful gardens can be environmentally responsible. Homeowners can adopt similar principles by incorporating native plants, rainwater harvesting systems and energy-efficient lighting into their landscape designs. This contributes to street appeal and aligns with Canberra’s commitment to sustainability.

5. Community engagement

Floriade is more than just a visual spectacle: it fosters a sense of community. Similarly, homeowners can enhance the attractiveness of their streets by engaging with their neighbours and the local community. Initiatives such as community gardening projects, tree planting or even participation in local events can create a greater sense of neighbourhood unity, which improves the area’s overall attractiveness.

6. Welcoming outdoor spaces

Floriade gardens are designed to be welcoming and comfortable spaces for visitors to explore and enjoy. Homeowners can create inviting outdoor areas, such as porches or decks, where they can relax, socialise, and enjoy the beauty of their own gardens like this cozy and beautiful space at 1/5 Foxton Crescent, Fadden.

7. Property value

Finally, the street appeal of a home is not only about aesthetics but can also influence property value. Homes with well-maintained and visually appealing exteriors tend to have higher resale values. Investing in your property’s exterior appeal can be a smart financial decision and create a more beautiful living space.
