Anita,
There are natural fertilizers out there in the market. Look for ones with a nutrient ratio of 3-1-2 or 4-1-2 and apply it rate of 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet of lawn area. If you are fertilizing shrubs and flowers apply the same rate. Control weeds by maintain a mulch surface over the soil. Hoeing and hand pulling can supplement mulching. For natural pest control it depends on the plant and pest so there is no one solution. Submit questions to the Home Depot web site with specific pest or disease questions and we'll be happy to suggest control options.
