There is a very simple solution to this. Look for natural solutions to your lawn care problems. There is a natural product for almost anything. The major difference is this: The natural products may take a little longer to be effective. You may have to reapply more often. Challenge yourself to break away from the supercharged chemicals and instant gratification. It is well worth it.
