Good morning, 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.

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:

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 Daccombe, Paignton, Marldon, Haccombe and Bovey Tracey.

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.

...you were professional, enthusiastic (even in the pouring rain) and took care of everything.

Many thanks for your work in our garden preparing the ground and laying the turf, it's a complete transformation! From the first email to completion of the job you were professional, enthusiastic (even in the pouring rain) and took care of everything. I'll certainly be recommending you to friends and family. Thank you

Harry Millman, South Devon

Thank you for all your hard work in laying our new turf.

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

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

...thanks very much for the work you've done to the garden.

Dear Shaun, thanks very much for the work you've done to the garden at 62 Mile End Road. Best Wishes.

Elly Corney

...he was efficient, professional, friendly and knowledgeable.

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

... we recommend you to clients whenever they need assistance with gardening.

Many thanks for the work you have carried out for me recently which is much appreciated. As you know, we recommend you to clients whenever they need assistance with gardening or landscaping and we always receive positive feedback. Keep up the good work!

Michael Foundly, Chamberlains Estate Agents

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

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

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.
