Gardening: Poisonous Trees & Plants for Dogs/Cats/Humans

This time of year brings most of us outside to enjoy the warmth and sunshine. We are now doing outdoor house projects and working in our yards: weeding, planting, raking etc. Perhaps you are getting your house ready for a "Open House" or creating more "Curb Appeal" but,

If you are a dog owner like myself, I should point out that when you're deciding on what trees and/or plants to plant in your yard, BEWARE of what is poisonous to your dog.
Also, certain Household plants can also be very harmful.
