Winter is a time for soft sweaters, holiday magic, and cozy evenings near the fireplace. It can also be a wonderful time to watch local birds as they prepare for the cold months ahead. Transform your backyard into a buffet of seeds, nuts, fruits, and berries, and before you know it, feathered friends will gather for the feast.  So, go ahead, snuggle up near a window with a warm cup of cocoa and enjoy the show!

Attract wildlife to your yard by planting native and adapted plants. Birds and squirrels eat seeds and berries as part of their natural diets, and are drawn to areas where the food is plentiful. Here are a few suggestions:
  • American Beautyberry: This native shrub’s white flowers form during the summer months and give way to beautiful bright purple berries during fall and winter. Berries remain even after the plant loses its leaves in winter. The winter berries serve as a valuable food source to many backyard birds.
  • Dwarf Yaupon: This adapted shrub shows off glossy and evergreen foliage, year-round. In winter, birds are attracted to its bright red berries and ability to provide shelter from the cold.
  • Soapberry Tree: This sun-loving native shade tree has bright yellow foliage in the fall. After dropping its leaves, bare branches showcase beautiful sprays of yellow soapberries, a favorite of local bird species.
Let your backyard inspire you to slow down and enjoy the natural world.  The birds will appreciate your help and reward you with a beautiful display of nature’s splendor.
Birding at Frisco Commons is a great activity for the recent weather!
You've got questions and our Licensed Irrigators have answers.

This week's question:

I saw a notice about changes in the way the free sprinkler inspection works. What exactly is changing?

As of January 1st,  the Water Resources team at Public Works implemented scheduling changes to the free sprinkler system checkup program.
  • Residential addresses with an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, and 9) as their last digit can schedule a free checkup during odd number years.
  • Residential addresses with an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, and 8) as their last digit can schedule a free checkup during even number years.

The WaterWise free sprinkler system checkup program began in 2006 with one licensed irrigator. The program is very popular with Frisco residents and saves homeowners millions of gallons of water. Learn more about free sprinkler system checkups here, or use the myFrisco app to schedule an appointment.
