We’ve transformed hundreds of drab yards and mucky playground surfaces into sanctuaries for the little people who use them (and, don’t forget, we were young once – click here for the evidence).

You should see the collection we have in the office of thank you cards from delighted children.

Sanctuary Synthetics has pioneered the use of coloured play grass cut into fun shapes which give endless stimulation to the imaginations of the kids. More importantly, our play surfaces conform to European Safety Standard EN1177 and meets HSE requirements so they are completely safe, as well as being maintenance free; wind and rain keep the grass clean.


“Our present surface is not suitable for the children to play on”

Rosaleen, Creche owner, referring to Health Board regulations


“Great team on the day – they came and they conquered!”

Suzanne, Early Scholars Creche, Athgarvan

As a school we had a garden but no actual play space for the students. Sanctuary’s professionalism shone through. Excellent job and company.
