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 14 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 Torquay, Teigngrace, Marldon, Bishopsteignton and Coffinswell.

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 have found him to be reliable, hard working and works to extremely high standards.

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

We couldn't have hoped for a better service!!

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.

Helen, 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

Shaun is a real professional and an absolute delight to deal with.

We first came across Manor Landscapes by chance whilst looking for a local professional to do some landscape gardening. Shaun is very diligent and knowledgeable, and his work is always first-rate. We now use Manor Landscapes to do all our garden work and we have a regular garden service. Shaun is a real professional and an absolute delight to deal with. His work is excellent, he likes to go the extra mile, and his prices are incredibly competitive.

Dr Sam Wilson

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

Thank you so much for the brilliant job, our garden looks so much better!

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!

Charlotte, 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.
