In Chesterton, a successful Lawn Care Company needs experience and to know the past…

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.

How Chesterton Grew | Knowing how to Treat the Sandy Soil

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.
