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.

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 Stoneyhill, Torquay, Sandygate, St Marychurch and Plainmoor.

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.

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

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

I was really impressed by your very quick response.

Thank you so much for coming to the rescue when the lawnmower blew up! I was really impressed by your very quick response and the fact that you could cut the lawn and hedge at such short notice. Best of all though, you did a fantastic job. It's obvious from the quality of your work that you are a perfectionist. It is testament to your excellent work that two of the neighbours have since asked for your contact details! How I wish you could have been my mother's gardener. She'd have loved you!

Elaine, South Devon

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

...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 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

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

Absolutely recommend to anyone.

Finally I found someone to tidy up a small patch out our front. These were the fourth people I had tried, one said she didnt want do do the work and the other two just never turned up. So I was pleased when they turned up for the first appointment to look at the job and give me a quote. Came today, just a week later and tidied up all the weeds and trimmed a tree we had which had got very overgrown. Will use them again for sure. Great service. Thankyou very much.

SW, Devon

The lawn and flowerbeds look beautiful.

South Devon Turf recommended Shaun to us. Shaun came out to see the work that was required and soon emailed back with a very reasonable price for the work. My husband, Andrew, and I were impressed with Shaun from the outset and he fitted us into his busy schedule so I could have my lawn laid in time for it to be settled in by my July birthday weekend. Shaun brought Steve, his experienced assistant, with him and they were both extremely hard working and very kind and understanding in making sure I got everything in the garden as I wanted as well as Shaun's excellent advice too. Thank you Shaun and Steve very much for doing such a splendid job even though it was on the hottest day this year! The lawn and flowerbeds look beautiful and we'll definitely do the watering every day to keep it looking that way.

Andrew and Shirley Phillips, Dunchideock
