Xtreme Sports Grass from Sanctuary Synthetics

Introducing X-Treme Sports Grass

For over a decade now we have been leading the way in Ireland for artificial grass lawns and play areas for gardens, schools, creches and corporate/retail. We are now delighted to launch our latest addition to our product range; X-Treme Sports Grass

Perfect for all weather pitches & sports areas. Designed specifically for sports, we have seen great demand for it across the country, with many schools having installed the surface in the first few weeks after we rolled* it out, and are now making the most of the area – rain or shine!

(*could not resist that pun!)
