Since the age of 14, I've been involved in creating and maintaining beautiful gardens. I started helping my father during school holidays, moved on to work for several gardening firms and enjoyed the work so much I created my own company Manor Landscapes 13 years ago.

I work with a fantastic range of clients to transform dreary and overgrown outdoor areas into desirable and usable garden spaces.

My experience has proven the need for effective planning and understanding of what you'd like to achieve from your new space.

1. Planning

Would you prefer the instant gratification of turf over the slow and nurturing option of seeding?

What type of lawn would you like? Does it need to be hardwearing for children or is it purely ornamental?

Do you want to incorporate additional flower beds, planters or a water feature into the lawn?

How much time do you want to spend maintaining your lawn?

2. Preparation & Laying

The best time to start your lawn project is typically between March and November for turf and May and September for seeding.

The ground will be prepared to lay the turf or seed. This can include removing hard landscaping or a previous lawn and laying topsoil. In all cases I would rotavate the soil, remove large stones and weeds, and level the area to ensure a bump free lawn.

I use quality turf and seeds. Turf must be healthy, green and weed free to ensure a quality finish.

While laying, care is taken not to damage the freshly completed areas.

3. Aftercare

I'll provide instructions on how to care for your new lawn immediately after it’s laid.

For turf, you need to ensure that it doesn’t dry out over the first few weeks and for seeding, daily watering is recommended. You need to keep off the grass until it starts to establish.

If you prefer, I can carry out maintenance visits.

4. Maintenance

I can provide ongoing advice in respect of lawn care and carry out regular maintenance visits to ensure that your lawn remains in mint condition.

With a passion for gardens and gardening, I can help you get or keep your garden under control with one off or regular maintenance visits.

Regular Maintenance

If you don’t have the time, the ability or just don’t know where to start with your garden then I can provide a weekly, fortnightly or monthly maintenance service. The cycle of weeding, mowing, pruning and planting never ends so let me do the hard work whilst you sit back, knowing that your garden oasis will thrive with my years of experience and knowledge.

One-off Maintenance

I work on all different sizes and types of garden so whether your garden needs a spruce up or complete clearance then you can trust me to do the job. Facing an overgrown garden can be daunting. If you’ve moved into a new property and the garden needs clearing, you want to improve the space for an upcoming party or you just need an expert boost to start your own gardening journey then I can help.

I offer a reliable, trustworthy and courteous service to help you maintain and create your ideal garden space whatever your garden needs.

What our customers say...

References are available on requests - here are some of the kind comments received by my past customers.

10 out of 10, would highly recommended his work.

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 would not hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone.

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

An excellent job done.

An excellent job done. We are very satisfied with the resulting lawn and also impressed by the professionalism with which it was carried out.

Thumbs up for local business people.

I would like to thank everyone who recommended Shaun Teague of Manor Landscapes - he is such a lovely man, full of humour, and has re-laid my lawn perfectly. Throughout the two days nothing was too much trouble and they work in the rain as well!! Thumbs up for local business people.

BF, Devon

Thank you so much for the brilliant job, our garden looks so much better!

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!

Charlotte, Devon

Shaun is an experienced professional and easy to deal with, highly recommended.

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 would definitely recommend!

Thank you to Shaun & team for an expert, professional job today. Working in difficult conditions - replacing topsoil and turf up narrow steps in a small space surrounded by new white walls (which remain white!) and all done in the pouring rain! The work was very neat and the area left tidy and now looks fantastic. We really appreciate Shaun fitting in the job at very short notice, he was competitively priced, excellent communication and very friendly, we would definitely recommend!


The lawn and flowerbeds look beautiful.

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

I was very pleased with the entire experience.

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.
