Serving customers throughout South Devon including Dartmoor, Paignton, Totnes, Bovey Tracey and Haccombe.
Good evening, 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 12 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 Babbacombe, Kingskerswell, Buckfastleigh, Coffinswell and Abbotskerswell.
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, Marldon, Sandygate, Heathfield and Liverton.
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.

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.

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
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!

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 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.
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.

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!
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
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!
