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 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.

Garden Maintenance

Serving customers throughout South Devon including Galmpton, Torquay, Sandygate, Abbotskerswell and Daccombe.

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.

We're so delighted with how the lawn looks.

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!

Siobhan, Devon

The lawns continue to look excellent and often receive complements.

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

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

Great job, thank you!

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!

Matt, Devon

I was extremely impressed...

I was extremely impressed with the reliable and professional service provided whilst quoting for, preparing and turfing our lawn. The lawn turf is of high quality, the quote was extremely reasonable and Shaun and his brother Steve are such friendly and knowledgeable gents. I would not hesitate in recommending Manor Landscapes. Thank you Shaun and Steve.

Mr O, 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.

Our friends have commented on the difference in the quality of the replacement lawn.

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

Superb, I am so happy!

I must let you know how pleased I am with our new lawn. Shaun and his team were punctual and worked very hard. They were really neat and tidy, and cleaned up well at the end of the job. I couldnt be more pleased with the stunning lawn he laid. Superb, I am so happy

SA, Devon
