In 1963, Denny Church started his landscape contracting business by doing a “common thing uncommonly well”. He took a $5,000 loan out from a friend, but paid it back within 9 months as the demand for his uncommonly well done landscapes seemed endless. As the “Church Value” news spread, so too did his loyal clients and the dedicated employees that believed in his vision.

Forty years later, in 2003, Bruce Church, his son, launched a new company, Balanced Environments, dedicated to build and improve on Denny’s philosophy and business experience. By offering superior service, respecting clients and their needs, building pride in everything they did, and creating value well above and beyond the clients' expectations. Bruce and his team of professionals have built a regional landscape company that now employs over 180 hard working, talented, and motivated individuals ready to serve their clients' needs.

Balanced Environments is today one of the largest professional landscape contractors in the Midwest with five locations serving an area that extends in three states, Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana. The company owns and operates hundreds of pieces of equipment, and provides landscape management, installation, irrigation, hardscape, and snow removal services to an ever increasing spate of loyal and appreciative clientele. In tandem with its partner company, Hard Surface Solutions, specialized in concrete and paving services, Balanced Environments is able to provide a true "single point of contact" for all outdoor services a building manager or owner might need.
