Overseeding is Prohibited in Frisco

Save money and water by letting your lawn go dormant this fall and winter. Overseeding your lawn with cool season grasses, such as rye and fescue, is prohibited in the City of Frisco. The exception is for erosion control and public spaces where safety is a concern. (Ordinance 19-04-34 Section 8).

This winter, avoid costly plumbing repairs by properly winterizing your home before the first extended freeze of the season.

To protect your pipes from bursting, wrap exterior hose bibs and exposed pipes with insulation. When freezing temperatures are in the forecast, allow your home’s heating system to reach exposed interior pipes by leaving under-sink cabinet doors open. Set all interior faucets to a slight drip- even a small amount of flowing water can prevent pipes from completely freezing.

While uncommon in our region, prolonged periods of freezing temperatures can occur. If you plan to be away from your home for an extended period of time this winter, ensure that your house remains properly heated in your absence. Setting the heater to run at a reduced temperature and opening cabinets to encourage warm airflow around pipes can prevent expensive pipe and flooding repairs.

Now is a good time to identify and insulate any exposed pipes with the potential to freeze around your home. Remember, proper preparation reduces the likelihood of a winter weather-related emergency.  
City of Frisco Public Works can help you with a water leak. There are 3 ways you can reach the department: call 972-292-5800, email or use the myFRISCO app – you can download in the APP store or access it through this webpage:

Most Frisco homes have a shutoff valve located within about 3-feet of the foundation. This valve is for homeowners to turn off water to the entire house. This video will show you how to do this as well as turn off the water to specific parts of your house.

Frisco Public Works has 12 water meter technicians available today to help. Response times vary, but are generally less than 30 minutes.
You've got questions and our Licensed Irrigators have answers.

This week's question:

I was interested in attending the workshops you offer but I'm not able to get the time off. Is it possible to get a copy of the handouts or presentation afterward?

Hello, it is very possible to get a copy of the handouts and presentations for our workshops. All you need to do is send an email to and we'll get them sent to you. That being said, when the workshop is being conducted by a guest speaker they aren't always able to share a copy of their presentation for distribution. 

Thank you for your interest and I hope you have a great rest of your week!
