Don't take my word for it, these are the words of some of my clients...
"We first came across Manor Landscapes by chance whilst looking for a local professional to do some landscape gardening. Shaun is very diligent and knowledgeable, and his work is always first-rate. We now use Manor Landscapes to do all our garden work and we have a regular garden service. Shaun is a real professional and an absolute delight to deal with. His work is excellent, he likes to go the extra mile, and his prices are incredibly competitive. "
Dr Sam Wilson
"Thanks to Shaun for a great job laying new turf, the garden looks amazing now. Always enthusiastic and professional. Leaves the garden clean and tidy. Highly recommended, wouldn't hesitate to use again. Keep up the good work. "
"Thank you so much for coming to the rescue when the lawnmower blew up!
I was really impressed by your very quick response and the fact that you could cut the lawn and hedge at such short notice.
Best of all though, you did a fantastic job. It's obvious from the quality of your work that you are a perfectionist. It is testament to your excellent work that two of the neighbours have since asked for your contact details!
How I wish you could have been my mother's gardener. She'd have loved you!
Elaine, South Devon
"We found Shaun through an online search of gardeners in the Newton Abbot area, he replied to our query quickly, came round within a few days to look at the job, answered all our questions thoroughly, especially my concerns about affecting pets and wildlife, and he provided us with a quote that same day which was very competitive. The job took a few weeks mainly to get rid of the old grass and weeds but once he started the job our new lawn was down in a day and a half. We couldn't have hoped for a better service!! Shaun is a hard working, friendly chap, who know's what he's doing, does it efficiently and to a high standard and I have no reservations in recommending him."
"From my first email to Shaun to our finished lawn, he was efficient, professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He responded very quickly to all correspondence, worked tirelessly in a heatwave to lay our lawn (which looks great), gave us advice on its maintenance and all for a very competitive price. I would have no hesitation in recommending his work or using his business again."
Claire Funge, South Devon
"Shaun - just thought i would drop you a quick line to say thank you for the garden work which you carried out last week 2/3/11 on Cherrywood close. The Garden looked fantastic and it was perfect timing for the open day we had on the property, many people commented on it so gave out a few of your cards , hopefully you'll get a few more leads from it. Good luck with your business and keep up the service - I am sure you'll do well! I will certainly be recommending you to my clients."
Tim Sample, Sample Mills, Newton Abbot
"Shaun was really great to deal with. Easy to book the work and on the day I was really happy with the lawn he created. I would have no hesitation in using him again and in fact I am!!
Mike Griffiths, Bovey Tracey
"South Devon Turf recommended Shaun to us. Shaun came out to see the work that was required and soon emailed back with a very reasonable price for the work. My husband, Andrew, and I were impressed with Shaun from the outset and he fitted us into his busy schedule so I could have my lawn laid in time for it to be settled in by my July birthday weekend. Shaun brought Steve, his experienced assistant, with him and they were both extremely hard working and very kind and understanding in making sure I got everything in the garden as I wanted as well as Shaun's excellent advice too. Thank you Shaun and Steve very much for doing such a splendid job even though it was on the hottest day this year! The lawn and flowerbeds look beautiful and we'll definitely do the watering every day to keep it looking that way."
Andrew and Shirley Phillips, Dunchideock
"An excellent job done. We are very satisfied with the resulting lawn and also impressed by the professionalism with which it was carried out."

"My wife and I moved into this house in the middle of September. Shaun contracted to clear my garden of over grown plants etc. Neither of us realised what was behind the trellis arch. In only 3 days, Shaun and his assistant cleared all the overgrown plants etc. that were in the bottom area of the property. Most importantly for us, also removed all the rubbish from the premises.
A superb job was completed fast and efficiently with always a smile and time for a chat. I would not hesitate to have him do work for me again.
I can be contacted if required with prior arrangement with Shaun."
B & P, East Ogwell
"Shaun rescued us from a very poorly executed turf laying project, and from the outset we were impressed with his knowledge-he saw immediately where the problems were and once available he set about rectifying the situation. He arranged everything from organising the skip for disposal of the existing turf, to the delivery of the new topsoil and turf. He and his brother Steve very skilfully completed the work in two days and we are absolutely delighted with the end result. He also, unlike the previous contractors, followed up with advice on the care of the new turf. Our friends have commented on the difference in the quality of the replacement lawn. We have no hesitation in recommending Shaun-he has a lifetime experience of laying turf and it shows! In addition he is a very kind and caring man, being gentle and considerate of our poorly cat."
John & Sue Turton, Devon
"My husband and I recently purchased a 60yr old bungalow. The garden had been neglected for many years among which included huge growths of ivy, bramble and bamboo, with many roots going far and wide. Shaun and his team worked diligently for almost a week, arriving on time always polite and good humoured and at the end of the day left the garden nice and tidy. We would not hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone."
Mr & Mrs Chapman, Devon
"I would recommend Shaun Teague for grounds maintenance work. In my experience Shaun responds promptly to an enquiry, site visits are professionally conducted and quotes/estimated times for work to be completed are fair and reasonable.
The nature of the work carried out for us involved working in a public and private space. Shaun took full account of access restrictions and worked weekends/hours to suit F&W Media International?s needs. Our site was left clean, tidy and much improved.
I was very pleased with the entire experience and plan to continue to use Manor Landscapes in the future."
Clare Medland, F&W Media International Ltd
"We needed some turfing to our front and rear gardens. We chose Shaun because we have worked with him before. He visited, discussed our requirements and then sent us an estimate which was very reasonable. Shaun spent a long time preparing the area ready for topsoil and eventually the turf laying was done with the help from his brother. We have always liked Shaun for his honesty, cheerful attitude and diligence. We have to say we think turfing is his passion the results speak for themselves. We would not hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone."
Mr & Mrs C, Devon
"We're so delighted with how the lawn looks. It was a mossy, bog with clay for soil, and now it is a crisp, healthy lawn, and all in 1 day! What an improvement! The after care instructions have been really helpful too, thank you Shaun!"
"Dear Shaun, I just wanted to thank you for the excellent work you have just completed at my home. Thanks to your advice, my garden has been totally transformed into a relaxing, enjoyable and easily maintained area. I am so impressed with your enthusiasm and professionalism that I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family."
J. M. Craig
"Would just like to say what a great job Shaun has done. Totally transformed our front garden, excellent work and service from getting a quote right until the last piece of turf was laid. Gave us some great advice on aftercare - 10 out of 10, would highly recommended his work."
Claire Crisp, Devon
"We are very satisfied with the service and work provided by Shaun. He replied promptly to our inquiry, listened to what we wanted and quickly provided a quote. The garden and patio clearance was carried out on time and all was left tidy. Thank you - to be recommended."
"Many thanks for the work you have carried out for me recently which is much appreciated. As you know, we recommend you to clients whenever they need assistance with gardening or landscaping and we always receive positive feedback. Keep up the good work!"
Michael Foundly, Chamberlains Estate Agents
"Having recently moved to Newton Abbot we needed some major and some minor jobs doing at both the front and back of our new house. We came across Shaun's website and he came to quote within a few days. He offered some great advice on what really needing doing and the best way to achieve what we were looking for. We have found him to be reliable, hard working and works to extremely high standards whilst being a pleasure to have around. We will certainly be using Shaun again in the future for more garden work and I cannot recommend him more highly."
Dr J, Newton Abbot
"Shaun came out and laid our turf for us for a total garden revamp. Shaun arrived promptly in the morning to start preparing the ground and receive the turf delivery. He provided excellent advice on products and aftercare of the lawn. When we arrived home from work we had a beautifully laid lawn. We are a couple of weeks down the line after following all of Shaun's tips and the grass is looking fantastic. Thank you so much for the brilliant job, our garden looks so much better!"
"We are very pleased with the work undertaken to our lawn. From first contact to hints and tips afterwards, Shaun and his team have been great. The work was done very well and the area left tidy and all done while we were at work. Great job, thank you!"
"I contacted Manor Landscapes to prepare the ground and lay a lawn in my daughters garden. Shaun was polite on the phone and arrived when arranged, did a thoroughly professional job in a quick and organized way. Tidy whilst working and left the garden looking smashing. Used good quality soil and weed-free turf all for a reasonable price. Shaun is an experienced professional and easy to deal with, highly recommended."
Mike Short, Devon
"We highly recommend Shaun from Manor Landscapes. Replaced our front lawn. Quick initial response to our first e mail and agreed timetable for the work kept too. Shaun and Steve make a great team and nothing is too much trouble. Site left clean and tidy. Lawn is looking great. Thanks to you both."
Mike & Jean, Torquay
"Many thanks for your work in our garden preparing the ground and laying the turf, it's a complete transformation! From the first email to completion of the job you were professional, enthusiastic (even in the pouring rain) and took care of everything. I'll certainly be recommending you to friends and family. Thank you "
Harry Millman, South Devon
"From the initial visit to my property Shaun had an honest approach to the job and offered clear and concise advice to myself. He worked tirelessly and left a fantastic lawn that so far has been the envy of family and neighbours. He has advised us of how to maintain the lawn. I have no hesitation to recommend Shaun to any project in you might be planning in your garden. Thank you Shaun."
Richard Brend, South Devon
"Located Shaun through a local business web site. Always a bit nervous getting a new supplier, but from the very outset Shaun gave us confidence and was on time with the quote for a new lawn, he gave us a date, and turned up on time! It was a very wet and windy Monday morning but he was very cheerful and got on with job in hand preparing the garden for a new lawn. He was very friendly hardworking and produced a fantastic front lawn for us! Excellent job all round, thank you Shaun! Oh and he has white coffee 2 sugars every 1/2 hour!! Will make sure we recommend you to anyone who asks."
Dave & Liz, Devon
"Dear Shaun, we are writing to thank you for all your hard work in laying our new turf. It has made the garden look so much better and we will certainly contact you in the future if we need any more work doing."
Mr & Mrs Devlin - Newton Abbot
"Manor Landscapes are employed here to look after all our garden requirements. They do an excellent job and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any gardening or landscaping work you require."
K L Grasby, Somerforde Residential Home, Newton Abbot
"Shaun's passion for gardening and our garden never ceases to amaze me. When we bought the house the garden was in a total mess, really overgrown, I would never have known where to start but Shaun knew exactly what was needed to bring it on. It really does feel like Shaun treats our garden as he would his own, he takes immense pride in the garden and pleasure from moving it back towards past glories.
Shaun has shown great vision in our garden but he always makes sure we are onboard with any ideas and takes care that we understand what he thinks should be done before progressing.
I am away from the house a lot and have 100% faith that the property will be secure and safe in his hands in my absence.
Taking someone on you barely know to work on your home is always fraught with worry but with Shaun we have really landed on our feet."
"From our first contact with Shaun he has been very friendly and helpful! Communication has been excellent and his work speaks for itself. He gave us plenty of advice for the aftercare or our turf. We could not be happier with our new lawn and would recommend him to everyone!"
Russ and Katy, Devon
"Dear Shaun, thanks very much for the work you've done to the garden at 62 Mile End Road. Best Wishes."
"We have had Shaun from Manor Landscapes lay two lawns for us along with some other gardening works. We have found the quality, service and price to be unbeatable. The lawns continue to look excellent and often receive complements. We would have no doubts in recommending Shaun to friends and family."
A Aucock, Kingsteignton
