Some states and counties have established fertilizer application restriction periods, known as blackout dates. During these blackout periods no fertilizer containing Nitrogen and/or Phosphorus can be applied to lawns. Overuse and associated nutrient runoff of lawn and garden fertilizers containing Nitrogen and Phosphorus has contributed to algal blooms in aquatic ecosystems. These ecosystems are sensitive and need to be protected. During these blackout periods we comply with all local and state regulations and restrict product application recommendations to solely Nitrogen and Phosphorus free products.
During these periods we will not ship products that contain Nitrogen or Phosphorus for application during the blackout periods. Green Out out is one of our products that will help maintain a green and lush lawn during these periods, it does not contain Nitrogen or Phosphorus.

*Exception to blackout *Phosphorus may only be applied when a soil test indicates that it is needed or when a lawn is being established, patched or renovated.
This means sunday nutrients products have lower application rates (per application) of Nitrogen and Phosphorus than many lawn products. Healthy grass can process up to about .5 lbs of Nitrogen per 1,000 sq ft. quickly. Our applications average around .35 LBS of Nitrogen per application. This means more precise applications, healthy grass, and less risk of fertilizer runoff. As with all fertilizer products sunday products should not be applied close to rivers, streams, storm drains, or other sensitive water areas.
