Serving customers throughout South Devon including Paignton, Kingskerswell, Maidenhead, Plainmoor and Bovey Tracey.
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.
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 Teignmouth, Torquay, Sandygate, Galmpton and Dartmoor.
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 Ivybridge, Haccombe, Combeinteignhead, Chudleigh and Heathfield.
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.

My husband and I recently purchased a 60yr old bungalow. The garden had been neglected for many years among which included huge growths of ivy, bramble and bamboo, with many roots going far and wide. Shaun and his team worked diligently for almost a week, arriving on time always polite and good humoured and at the end of the day left the garden nice and tidy. We would not hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone.
Mr & Mrs Chapman, Devon
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!
An excellent job done. We are very satisfied with the resulting lawn and also impressed by the professionalism with which it was carried out.

I contacted Manor Landscapes to prepare the ground and lay a lawn in my daughters garden. Shaun was polite on the phone and arrived when arranged, did a thoroughly professional job in a quick and organized way. Tidy whilst working and left the garden looking smashing. Used good quality soil and weed-free turf all for a reasonable price. Shaun is an experienced professional and easy to deal with, highly recommended.
Mike Short, Devon
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
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
From the initial visit to my property Shaun had an honest approach to the job and offered clear and concise advice to myself. He worked tirelessly and left a fantastic lawn that so far has been the envy of family and neighbours. He has advised us of how to maintain the lawn. I have no hesitation to recommend Shaun to any project in you might be planning in your garden. Thank you Shaun.
Richard Brend, South Devon
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
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.
