Steve Daly's Tips

Watering Advisory for Chesterton

Chesterton Lawns are being challenged by no significant rain.  Be sure to follow up on recent rain by properly watering. To maintain health and color, cool-season grasses require 1 1/2 inches of rain weekly. Soil type, water pressure, and sprinkler type will determine length of time and frequency. In sandy soils, water penetrates quickly and requires deep watering every 2 to 3 days. Loamy soils need water about every 4 days. Clay needs water once every 5 to 7 days for an extended period in each area. Refrain from water frequently with light amounts of water. This will shallow roots and promote fungal activity. Each time the grass goes in and out of severe stress, it is more likely to be prone to disease and insect damage. This last couple of weeks put lawns under duress. It will take a little time for the grass to bounce back. Expect color to return only after you water. The seven-day forecast appears to be in the 70s and 80s with some rain, so hopefully, Mother Nature will continue to aid the recovery

Knowing the soil composition and unique climate of Chesterton helped Perma-Green grow into Chesterton’s most established lawn maintenance service.  But building lifetime relationships sometimes means you also need to know how to treat people and deliver what people want.  While Perma-Green might be Chesterton’s oldest Lawn Care Service, owner Steve Daly’s family has been in Porter County since the 1880s. That might seem like a long time until you consider how long Chesterton has had inhabitants. Chesterton’s roots begin thousands of years ago.

Part of a great continental crossroads, the Chesterton area was for thousands of years home to a succession of early people attracted to the healthy, green plant life. Even the earliest members of the Great lakes Woodland Culture were attracted to the areas of natural beauty. The earliest inhabitants of the Chesterton area were Native American cultures that loved to hunt and farm the area’s densely forested land. Later came the Miami and Potawatomi Indians, who were replaced by settlers after selling their land to the U.S. government.

The community of Coffee Creek, named after a nearby stream, was settled in 1834 by the Thomas family. The town was renamed Calumet in 1850 and in 1852 was platted for the first time. In 1870 the town’s name was changed to Chesterton because of the confusion caused by another town named Calumet on the same railroad line.

 Knowing how to Fertilize Chesterton Lawns

The Chesterton area saw many people come and go because the soil left many challenges to its inhabitants. It was when early settlers learned to maintain the soil with fertilizers and the right watering solutions that tamed this remarkable landscape. With deep roots, Perma-Green is uniquely qualified to help you find the right lawn care programs for your lawn.
