Ben Upton and his family had ideas about improving their house, putting up a shed or a pergola.

They sat down with their local Pride of Place Enabler and, together, put together a savings plan and backyard design.

“We had ideas in our head that just came together.”

Ben and his family already grow citrus plants so they decided to find out about other plants they could grow, and chose bananas, papaws and passionfruit.

“Our new outdoor space gives us more room to get together when we have a special occasion, and enjoy all the things we have here.”

“It just gives us more space for the kids to play and be happy.”
