{My experience with Balanced Environments has been wonderful. My account manager is always available when we need her. She returns calls or emails faster than anyone I have ever worked with. She is also very creative to come up with solutions to some tough problems. Her service is always with a smile. This past year she was able to meet our very strict budget and still make the hanging baskets, flower beds and property look better than ever. She is a pleasure to work with and is always under constant demands from our very vocal landscaping committee. I would highly recommend her to any other campus or property.{

{Balanced Environments is a "complete" landscape company. From design to implementation to lawn care and plant maintenance. During the drought, plants were monitored and watered, sometimes daily, to prevent loss. The crews have always been polite and accommodating, especially to driveway traffic. Not always an easy task on some days! I use Balanced Environments at my primary residence and two additional properties as well.{
Amy W.
VP of Facilities Management, Crystal Lake
{I wanted to let you know how pleased I am to be working with you at the Castle Rock Home Owners Association in Schaumburg this year. Balanced Environments has done a complete turnaround from our previous contractor. I have received many compliments on how professional your company is. Dealing with hundreds of residents here is not an easy feat and I appreciate you getting to know who the "squeaky wheels" are and accommodating them the way you do! This makes my job a lot easier! Please let your crews know that they are doing a great job. Keep up the great work!{
