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 14 years ago.

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

To help ensure that you can enjoy your new lawn for years to come, I can help you with all aspects of lawn creation and maintenance:

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.

Garden Maintenance

Serving customers throughout South Devon including Newton Abbot, Chudleigh, Ogwell, St Marychurch and Shaldon.

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.

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

... 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!


He was very friendly hardworking and produced a fantastic front lawn for us!

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

We would not hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone.

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

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

Excellent job in re-turfing our garden.

It was great to have a firm that turns up early and gets on with the job. Shaun was very professional in all aspects of the work, ie preparation, laying new top soil/good quality turfs, removal of waste and cleaning up. He takes pride in his work and even offered to do the first cut of the lawn. The striped lawn looks great!

D&M, Bovey Tracey

Lawn is looking great. Thanks to you both.

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

Shaun's passion for gardening and our garden never ceases to amaze me.

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.
