The story of Artificial Grass in Ireland?

That is the story of Sanctuary Synthetics.

Where does the story begin? It starts with Mark ...

Mark O’Loughlin is a true entrepreneur, a fact recognised by the formidable ‘dragons’ on the RTÉ television show Dragons’ Den. On the show Mark sought and won investment for another business, Hidbin, his invention for hiding unsightly wheelie bins. 

Mark has run his garden design and creation business for more years than he cares to remember and, over the last two decades or so, has become the go-to man for synthetic grass in Ireland.
No stranger to (real) grass, Mark is the son of a farmer, and (continuing his close association with turf), represented Leinster, Irish Colleges and Ireland in under-21s rugby.  Even before he started his landscaping business, Mark was influencing outdoor living spaces by pioneering the importation of log cabins. He worked in Germany, the USA and Australia before setting up Sanctuary Landscapes (now Sanctuary Synthetics). 

Flashback ...

Picture us, proud as punch, at the Home and Garden show at the RDS, Dublin, circa 2003, promoting synthetic grass for domestic garden use. People laughed at us. “That’s one thing we have plenty of here!”, they hooted. 

Nearly 20 years later, over 5,000 families have chosen our synthetic grass because it solves a problem for them.

Sanctuary Synthetics was originally based in a fetching log cabin (what else?) in Naas before expanding quickly and becoming Ireland's premier synthetics grass supplier and installer.  We are currently headquartered in Grassland, Naas - a custom built artificial grass and  putting green showrooms and warehouse, the only one of its kind in Ireland.
