Valparaiso Lawn Fertilization
Steve Daly loves his hometown of Valparaiso. While his Perma-Green Lawn was established in Valpo in 1974, his Valparaiso Lawn Fertilization company has grown into Northwest Indiana’s oldest and most respected Lawn Care company. But Daly’s heart belongs in Valparaiso where he raised his family. Today, his daughters help him run the family business.
Just ask any lawn care expert, knowing the turf is critical in knowing the best lawn fertilization solutions, especially in Valparaiso and Porter County, where soil composition is diverse. In some cases, the soil varies from neighborhood to neighborhood.
The Daly family has deep roots in Valparaiso. While owning Porter Counties’ oldest lawn fertilization company might seem impressive, it fails by comparison to Daly’s history in Valparaiso.
Valparaiso Lawn Watering Tips
“Watering time… 1/2 inch in 30 minutes from the storm on Monday was helpful but not enough. Supply the other inch. Weekly watering does not have to be a chore. Pick one day per area and water accordingly, unless you are in sand, then every 3-4 days. Mow on the highest setting also to ensure roots stay deep and healthy. Enjoy this beautiful day and stay safe out there!”

Perma-Green's family roots in Valpo go back to the 1880's
The Daly family has its roots firmly established in Northwest Indiana, in fact, Daly’s family goes back to the 1880’s – when Valpo was establishing its own roots.
According to Daly, “having deep roots in Valparaiso and Northwest Indiana has been the cornerstone to how we do business. When you’re doing business with neighbors, you look at lawn solutions as a partnership. Accountability is something you give and expect back”.
Maybe that’s why after nearly 50 years, Perma-Green Lawn Care is still considered Valpo’s best lawn service company.
Valparaiso Lawn Fertilation | Perma-Green Lawn Solutions
Knowing the soil composition and unique climate of Valparaiso helped Perma-Green grow into Valpo’s most established lawn care company. 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 Northwest Indiana’s oldest Lawn Care Company, owner Steve Daly’s family has been in Porter County since the 1880s. While this might seem like a long time, Valparaiso’s roots begin in 1834, when it was called Portersville.
Valpo’s roots begin in 1834 | The first home-owner had a breathtaking view
To learn more about Valparaiso’s earliest history, we turn to the book, Making Paradise.
Most cities are built on water. Valparaiso was built on faith, promotion, and speculation. Valparaiso’s story begins when Valparaiso was in Potawatomi Indian Territory. A treaty with the U.S. government was made in 1832 and the land became open for settlement.
Among the first settlers was Thomas Campbell. Campbell scouted the Sauk Trail, which was a significant route for the early inhabitants. J. P. Ballard built the first house in Valparaiso in 1834. The home was a simple log cabin; however, the view was breathtaking. It was in the valley by the stream that runs under Morgan Street. The first county commissioner’s meeting was held at Ballard’s cabin in April, 1936.
The lots around the square in Valpo haven’t changed since 1834
Most cities are built on a natural feature, such as a waterfall utilized for manufacturing or a harbor on the coast of a seaport. Other cities owe their origins to being located near a fort. Valparaiso originated in the imagination of promoters.
Valparaiso, which was originally called Portersville, was created by young pioneers chasing the American dream. They speculated people would buy land if they created a settlement on a beautiful wooded moraine in the center of the newly established county.
At the center of the settlement, the pioneers reserved a square plot for the future town square. The land around the square was carved into lots that sold for an average price of $100. These lots are virtually unchanged to this day. It took only three years for the Portersville Land Company to sell every lot in town.
Perma-Green knows a thing or two about Valparaiso and its soil and is proud to be the original Valparaiso’s Lawn Fertilization company.
