Company’s Profile

Sunday was founded by two brothers who wanted to improve lawn care. It was founded in 2019 and has not yet received a rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. However, it was listed by TIME as one of the best inventions in 2019. It differs from other traditional lawn care services. For Sunday Lawn services, you do the work yourself using natural products, compared to other companies, where you hire a lawn care professional.

Location

The headquarters of Sunday Lawn Care is located in Boulder, Colorado. However, Sunday ships its products across all 50 states in the country. The delivery period is dependent on where you live. However, their delivery is generally fast.

Sunday Lawn Care aims to improve the lawn while still reducing the chemical-laced products that can negatively affect people and animals. Their products are designed to treat the lawn by use of the exact nutrients that your lawn needs.

How to Sign Up on Sunday Lawn Care

To sign up on Sunday Lawn Care, you can visit their sign-up page and fill in the required details, and you are ready to go. To get started, you will need to fill in your address to make it easier for Sunday Lawn to customize your plan. Sunday Lawn does this by checking the climate history of your locality and choosing a suitable plan for your lawn.

The locality analysis further gives more information on the soil type you are likely to be dealing with. Furthermore, you will know the growth potential of your lawn, the precipitation levels in your area, temperature patterns, and other statistics that may come in handy when servicing your lawn.

The information received by Sunday Lawn Care from you will lead to healthy grass seed growth and generally improved lawn health.

Sunday Lawn Care Plans And Packages

One year’s subscription will include three shipments, with a total of six pouches, one lab soil test kit, and a lawn review. The three shipments include;

  • First box-Iron Booster, Grass Powerhouse, Lab soil test, and a sprayer

  • Second box- Lawn Strength and Grass Powerhouse

  • Third box-Lawn Strength and Winter Ready

The lab soil test helps in knowing the specific nutrient deficiencies and needs. It allows the team to refine the plan and determine the exact needs of your lawn.

If you would like to add weed control products to your box, there are several you can choose from. These include;

  1. Weed Warrior: This organic weed control/killer eliminates moss and other weeds in 20 minutes. You need to ensure that you don’t apply it to the good grass.

  2. Dandelion Doom: This weed control formula is iron-based that kills broadleaf weeds and dandelion. It doesn’t harm the grass.

Subscriptions start and renew between February and April. Your subscription includes a full growing season of nutrients split into three shipments, roughly every two months. These plans can be canceled at any time.

Pricing

Sunday boasts of their favorable prices. A Sunday Lawn Care cost starts at $69 annually. This is way cheaper than most lawn care companies.

Sunday weed warrior is a ready-to-use weed control spray. This makes it easier for me to use in my yard since I do not have to go through the arduous process of mixing the right parts. The weed killers from Sunday get the job done rapidly, dehydrating the weeds and ridding them of the chance to ruin your property.

Sunday Weed Warrior works in a matter of minutes to eliminate unwanted plants.

Image Source: blog.machanet.com

Take Note: The weed killer does not choose which plants to kill. Therefore, DO NOT apply it on your lawn, as it will kill everything, including grass.

The places I use the weed killer include on the driveway, where I do not want grass growing, or around the house. The best thing about the weed killer is that it does not stain bricks or concrete. While this particular weed killer is not what my lawn requires, it does come in handy sometimes.

Pros:

  • Works in minutes
  • Ready for use
  • Affordable
  • Easy to apply
  • Best among pest control options

Cons:

  • Kills all plants indiscriminately

Once I had done my soil analysis, the Sunday Green Machine Fertilizer is all I needed to encourage lush growth on my lawn. The fertilizer works for any lawn size as it can cover up to 5000 Sq. ft., which is above the average lawn size.

Image Source: forbes.com

The Sunday fertilizer pack comes ready to attach to a garden hose to help me apply it evenly, making it a great pick when looking at options. With the Green Machine, I do not need to use pesticides on my lawn as it takes care of that too. This reduces the amount of lawn products I have to use. Since I can use the Sunday Green Machine on my own, I do not need to rely on professional services when using the product.

Pros:

  • Improves soil quality
  • Sunday products are easy to use
  • No pesticide is needed after using the Green Machine Sunday lawn care ingredients
  • Best Sunday lawn fertilizer for any lawn care
  • Attaches to any universal sprayer

Cons:

  • The pack does not attach to the hose properly at times

If you have a scruffy lawn, the sun and shade grass seed-spot treatment is here with us. I used the Sunday Bare repair on my lawn seed that seemed not to take off, and I got results soon after. Regardless of taking a soil test kit and working on samples, some areas in the yard can be slower, and Sunday Bare repair is the answer.

The Sunday Lawn treatment works after just fourteen days, making it a rapid help for any slow grass seeds to improve lawn health.

Pros:

  • Leads to healthy soil
  • Easy to apply
  • Works rapidly
  • Great for uneven lawn treatments

Cons:

  • Not great to use during dryer seasons

Just as the name suggests, the kickstart fertilizer is great to set your lawn care on a positive trajectory. I like using fertilizer because it helps my lawn stay greener by fixing the iron. The fertilizer further nourishes my lawn with potassium, improving the hydration on the ground.

Image Source: lowes.com

The Sunday Lawn Kickstart fertilizer is one of my most preferred Sunday Lawn products as it has nitrogen which boosts growth. However, after use, I have to be ready with weed control sprays to kill the weed that benefits from the nutrient value added by the fertilizer.

Pros:

  • Easy to apply
  • Affordable
  • Attaches to a universal hose
  • Has nutritious value for lawn basic care

Cons:

  • The packet may not attach to every hose perfectly.

How Sunday Lawn Care Compares to Competitors

a) Price

Compared to other options, Sunday Lawn is a bit costly. However, Sunday Lawn offers a more personalized professional lawn care service. Furthermore, you can save on some costs as you will do some of the work yourself.

b) Coverage

Sunday Lawn provides its services in 50 states, which is more than most lawn care service providers. However, since Sunday Lawn Care is a DIY lawn care service, no one will physically visit your lawn as the point is for you to do everything on your own. Competitors like Naturalawn of America have a door-to-door service with workers who will clean the debris before leaving.

So, while Sunday Lawn Care cuts across all 50 states, it is important to note that they only ship their products and lawn prescription to you.

Customer Reviews

Image Source: archived.curbed.com

Some Customers on their website are saying:

"I was skeptical at first, getting fertilizer for my entire yard that I can carry all at once and not need a wheelbarrow to lug 50 lb bags around. This is now my second year, and I already see results. I love the “to-do list” and not needing to know or find time to go get big box store fertilizer. I literally do nothing, then all of a sudden boom, get a package in the mail and know that in the following weekend, I’m fertilizing." Tim, April 2023

"Waste of time and money. Hose attachment works half the time, and the results have been less than stellar after 2+ years. We wanted something safe for the pets, but there is no substitute for the good stuff." Nick, April 2023

"After three applications last year, my lawn was full of weeds and yellow spots for the first time. I went back to True Green, and within 45 days, it was better. Now I just received a shipment of this stuff for this year, not knowing I had signed up for a service that would auto-renew. Shame on me for not knowing, so more money is wasted, and they won’t take it back. So add poor service to a product that does not work." Chrisdubie, April 2023

“For me, I didn’t get the product on time, so it was very late for the first application. I also bought the weed killer, and it was worthless and way more expensive than other products that really work. Eric, in customer service, is polite and kind but offered no refund or anything else to correct the weed killer’s lack of effectiveness. I may try the lawn stuff one more time if I can get it on time, but the weed killer, never again.” — Jeff R.

From our observation, most of the customers were not satisfied with the customer service, the company's mission, and the product.

Sunday Lawn Care Customer Service

While it is fair to note that people with a negative review are more likely to air their views compared to positive reviews, most reviews left by Sunday Lawn Care seem to be complaints.

The customer service of Sunday Lawn Care could do better, going by the customer reviews. However, whether the customers have a complaint, an inquiry, or something positive or negative to say, they will all receive a response from the company, which is commendable. The following is an example of a response from the company after someone complained of damage after using their product.

Juan Pico—We’re so sorry to hear this! It is extremely uncommon for our products to cause browning, we’re going to have one of our turf experts reach out to you to try and diagnose the problem further and get this fixed! We do offer a full money-back guarantee if you’re not happy with your results, but of course, we want to help get your green lawn back on track ASAP. Look out for an email from us, and again our apologies!”
