Porter County Lawn Fertilization & Watering

Porter County is where Perma-Green was established and built its roots as Porter County's Lawn Care of choice.

Helping Porter County with Grass Fertilizer since the 70s

While Perma-Green was founded in 1974 as a lawn fertilizer company, it was the expertise and experience in working with Porter County’s diverse soil composition and helping people find solutions that helped the company grow and grow!  Its homegrown values and sense of community helped differentiate Perma-Green from other lawn care companies in the area. This page was created as a means of offering our neighbors helpful tips that include soil composition maps, real-time Porter County rain precipitation, watering tips, and seasonal specials.

While this page offers a useful guide to Porter County homeowners, the secret to knowing which full-season plan is right for your unique soil and lawn does require a lawn analysis. Every lawn is different and the best plan varies from lawn to lawn. Fortunately, Perma-Green starts every relationship with a no-cost analysis and estimate. While many lawn care companies will create estimates without visiting your lawn, this usually means they are using generic fertilizers that are not optimized for your unique requirements.
