Welcome to Manor Landscapes

Serving customers throughout South Devon including Daccombe, Teignmouth, Torquay, Newton Abbot and Bovey Tracey.

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 13 years ago.

I work with a fantastic range of clients to transform dreary and overgrown outdoor areas into desirable and usable garden spaces.

I can also provide information on suitable plants and foliage for your garden as well as garden planning with my landscaping knowledge.

Turf Laying & Maintenance

Serving customers throughout South Devon including Stoneyhill, Buckfastleigh, Maidenhead, Liverton and Bishopsteignton.

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 Ogwell, Heathfield, Babbacombe, Ivybridge and Haccombe.

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.

They do an excellent job...

Manor Landscapes are employed here to look after all our garden requirements. They do an excellent job and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any gardening or landscaping work you require.

K L Grasby, Somerforde Residential Home, Newton Abbot

I was very pleased with the entire experience.

I would recommend Shaun Teague for grounds maintenance work. In my experience Shaun responds promptly to an enquiry, site visits are professionally conducted and quotes/estimated times for work to be completed are fair and reasonable. The nature of the work carried out for us involved working in a public and private space. Shaun took full account of access restrictions and worked weekends/hours to suit F&W Media International?s needs. Our site was left clean, tidy and much improved. I was very pleased with the entire experience and plan to continue to use Manor Landscapes in the future.

Clare Medland, F&W Media International Ltd

... we would definitely recommend!

Thank you to Shaun & team for an expert, professional job today. Working in difficult conditions - replacing topsoil and turf up narrow steps in a small space surrounded by new white walls (which remain white!) and all done in the pouring rain! The work was very neat and the area left tidy and now looks fantastic. We really appreciate Shaun fitting in the job at very short notice, he was competitively priced, excellent communication and very friendly, we would definitely recommend!

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.

Mike & Jean, Torquay

We could not be happier with our new lawn and would recommend him to everyone!

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

I will certainly be recommending you to my clients.

Shaun - just thought i would drop you a quick line to say thank you for the garden work which you carried out last week 2/3/11 on Cherrywood close. The Garden looked fantastic and it was perfect timing for the open day we had on the property, many people commented on it so gave out a few of your cards , hopefully you'll get a few more leads from it. Good luck with your business and keep up the service - I am sure you'll do well! I will certainly be recommending you to my clients.

Tim Sample, Sample Mills, Newton Abbot

...the garden looks amazing now.

Thanks to Shaun for a great job laying new turf, the garden looks amazing now. Always enthusiastic and professional. Leaves the garden clean and tidy. Highly recommended, wouldn't hesitate to use again. Keep up the good work.

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.

I would like to thank everyone who recommended Shaun Teague of Manor Landscapes - he is such a lovely man, full of humour, and has re-laid my lawn perfectly. Throughout the two days nothing was too much trouble and they work in the rain as well!! Thumbs up for local business people.
