Serving customers throughout South Devon including Ivybridge, Bovey Tracey, Marldon, Shaldon and Newton Abbot.
Good afternoon, I'm Shaun Teague and I have been providing quality gardening maintenance and turfing services to the local community for over 30 years.
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.
As a small business owner, I have built my reputation on reliability, professionalism and experience. I pride myself in delivering excellent garden solutions and ensuring customer satisfaction.
I have been providing landscape gardening services for the last 30 years for homeowners and businesses of all sizes including landlords, letting agents, manor houses and building contractors.
I understand the importance of good standards of working practices. I offer a reliable service for turfing, seeding, and maintaining your garden. Your garden will be in good hands with my courteous and trustworthy manner. I can also provide information on suitable plants and foliage for your garden as well as garden planning with my landscaping knowledge. Prices are competitive in return for a very high quality service.
Your garden and outdoor spaces will flourish in good hands with my courteous and reliable service. I offer:
Serving customers throughout South Devon including Torquay, Daccombe, Abbotskerswell, St Marychurch and Heathfield.
With decades of experience in supplying and maintaining turf, I can help you choose the right variety for your garden. Whether you go for the instant beauty of turf, or the slower seeding option, a great lawn can transform your garden creating a lush green space.
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:
Take a look at some of my recent turfing work in the photos below - you can slide between before and after photos.
My experience has proven the need for effective planning and understanding of what you'd like to achieve from your new space.
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?
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.
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.
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.
Serving customers throughout South Devon including Galmpton, Sandygate, Teignmouth, Teigngrace and Dartmoor.
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.
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.
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.

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
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!
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.

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
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!
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
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, 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.
