Least toxic lawn care

Our 3/4 acre yard here in upstate NY used to be mostly grass, but it's become small amounts of grass mixed with a lot of clover, creeping veronica, crabgrass, dandelions, you name it.  We try to avoid using herbicides or chemical fertilizer.  When weeds sprout in our garden or patio I spray them with a vinegar mixture (which is a good temporary fix), and we mulch our grass clippings and leave them on our lawn as a natural "fertilizer".  With 5 little ones playing in the yard during the warmer months, we've tried to avoid hiring a lawn care company because we don't want the children being exposed to potentially dangerous chemicals.  But the yard is becoming a mess.  We don't really have the time to tackle it ourselves, plus I think at this point we need a professional.  Are there lawn care companies that offer environmentally friendly options?

Have you tried googling organic lawn care companies in your area?

It would probably be easier to sod the lawn over again than to try to control weeds and invasive grasses at this point in the game. Did you know that there are artificial lawns? Safe for kids and pets. Not like astroturf. It looks real!

OT whats the laziest way to control weeds in AZ gravel?
