How is Sunday packaged?
The first box ships in a carton mailer box with a simple Sunday branding. It includes the sprayer, the soil test kit, and nutrient pouches. On top of the items is an info sheet that lists all the items in the box and instructions on how to use the lawn treatments. The flip side shows your Sunday Lawn Care Plan and your lawn’s assessment. The packs are even secured with custom carton packaging to ensure they arrive in good condition and without leaks.
Nutrient pouches are made with 60% less plastic than traditional plastic bottles.

My Sunday Review
Sunday Smart Lawn Plan is a lawn care subscription, that is custom-made based on your lawn’s soil health and local climate. Your first box will come with starter tools and a soil testing kit to help them learn what nutrients your soil needs. For the boxes that follow, you will receive a customized shipment of nutrients packed in pouches. Full-season Smart Lawn Plans start at $129. Sunday also offers a variety of lawn care products in their shop that you can add on to your box or check out any time! This is our review of the Summer box.
NOTE: Starting 9/1 and effective to 12/31, Sunday will change its Smart Lawn Plan to only one shipment (the winter box). With that change, ALL Smart Lawn Plans drop in price to $69-$169 depending on the size of the lawn. The regular seasonal price starts at $129.
Sunday provides an information sheet with instructions on how to properly use the contents of the Smart Lawn box, so it’s hard to go wrong.
There are more details about our plan on the back of the sheet, as well as our lawn’s assessment.
They even listed when the next box will ship and what items it will contain.
If you’re a new subscriber, you can look at a quick assessment of your lawn on their website prior to sending soil samples. Find out more information about that from our first Sunday Smart Lawn Plan review. Their system automatically estimates the square footage of your lawn!
The lawn analysis includes the regional soil profile, growth potential, temperature, and rainfall.
Everything in my Summer Sunday box!
We have 2 pouches of Mighty Green and Heat Helper!
Sunday Mighty Green. Mighty Green is a uniquely formulated liquid fertilizer made with urea, urea ammonium nitrate, urea-triazone, and muriate.
This pack contains 1,250 ml of liquid plant fertilizer, which can cover an area of up to 5,000 sq ft.
The back of the pack includes instructions on how to use this. First, you have to attach the pouch and hose to the sprayer. Then, water your entire lawn evenly!
This mixture contains a total of 26% nitrogen and 2% of soluble potash, which promotes grass growth!
According to the bottom of the pack, a portion of every purchase goes to restoring tallgrass prairie!
Sunday Heat Helper. The second variant of liquid fertilizers in our box is Heat Helper! It supports grass growth, root vigor, and also helps prepare your lawn for the summer heat.
This pack contains 1,250 ml of liquid fertilizer, which can cover an area of up to 3,000 sq ft.
Same with the first bag of fertilizer, this is easy to use! Just attach the pouch and hose to the sprayer and then distribute it to your lawn evenly.
This mixture consists of 15% nitrogen with 2% of soluble potash. It also contains non-plant food ingredients such as salicylic acid and inert ingredients.
I started by surveying around our lawn – here’s what it’s looking like after the first treatment.
What’s great about Sunday Lawn products is that they don’t have a weird or off-putting smell. Also, as long as the spray has dried, people and pets can enter the treated area.
This part of our lawn has grass that really needs some nourishment.
This is the first year we’ve ever tried to do anything with our lawn!
I think we might need to get a bottle of Pet Patch, which helps repair lawn areas damaged by pet urine.
I opted to start on the area where the soil looks a bit dry and the grass color looks a bit lighter but there’s more than enough fertilizer/treatment to cover our entire lawn.
The pouch is easy to use: simply connect the back part of the sprayer to your water hose and attach it to the fertilizer bag.
Open the hose and spray it all over your lawn area.
The liquid fertilizer mixed easily with the water and it sprays equally on the lawn.
I really love the sprayer! It’s handy and easy to use. Remember to save it from your first box.
I sprayed more fertilizer on this part of our lawn since we had bigger plants that need more nutrition.
This is how it looks before spraying.
This is how the grass looks because of Sunday’s natural fertilizer. It’s darker, thicker, and greener! All of this is our existing lawn.
Is Sunday Worth It?
Sunday offers an easy, non-toxic way to take care of our lawn. This is our second box, and already the results are great! After removing unwanted weeds from our lawn using the mixtures in our first box, now we put on fertilizers to keep the grass green and healthy. This subscription ships right on schedule, just when our lawn needs it. It’s perfect because as soon as we receive the box, we can start spraying them. Another thing I like about their products is that they are backed by science with no harmful ingredients in the treatments! If you think caring for your lawn is a daunting task, Sunday might change your mind. They eliminate the need to go to the hardware store because everything will be sent to your door and customized for your lawn already!
