Who Loves Your Lawn? Local Business, Perma-Green!


The snow is gone, the weather is warm, and that means it’s time to get outside in the yard. It’s time to make your lawn beautiful and healthy! But do you have time and knowhow to do it properly? If you answered “no” then you should call in experts, like those at Perma-Green who have the time and the knowhow to help you out.

Perma-Green is a locally owned lawn care service that has service Northwest Indiana since 1974. Residing in the same location for 41 years, the business specializes in turf management and weed control. They work in Lake, Porter, La Porte, and Jasper counties, loyally serving clientele in residential and commercial industries.

“We are the oldest lawn care provider in the area,” Steve Daly, General Manager of Perma-Green said. “We service approximately 2,000 homes, while providing specialized attention to each one.”

Daly oversees the daily activities of the Perma-Green office and his employees. He travels constantly around the region, visiting clients checking lawns, and doing estimates. He has well trained technicians who service nearly 30 lawns – per day.

“My workers go through extensive training. We send them down to Purdue to take qualifying tests before they can work. They have to be licensed to do what we do,” Daly explained. “By the time our technicians have worked here for a couple of months they have experienced more turf situations than many homeowners will in a lifetime. Although some people like to do it themselves, generallly the cost benefits are not there any longer with current product costs. I believe the benfits of hiring a lawn care service are greater than when you do it yourself.”

The business came to fruition when Walter Shiplov got a summer job in lawn care while in college at Ball State University. He came home with the notion that he could make a living from it and he started Perma-Green. Walter along with his wife Laurie still own and operate Perma-Green.

The company is a close group that works in a relaxed, family-oriented setting.

“It doesn’t feel like work. We joke and have fun, but we're serious about our work and we get the job done,” Daly said. “It’s a good place to work. We are serving homeowners all over Northwest Indiana and that feels good.”
