For pests, I would recommend neem oil. It is organic, effective at killing harmful bugs but will be safe for people,animals and beneficial bugs. You should be able to find this at the hardware store. Here is more info:

In terms of weeds and grass, the best natrual control methods are either hand weeding or hoeing or smothering. Smothering involves laying down landscaping cloth or thick layers of newspaper in between your plants and over the weeds. The newspaper or cloth can then be covered with mulch to make it look nicer, if you would like.
