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).

The warm colors of autumn leaves help brighten this cooler season. As leaves begin to fall from their branches, many residents wonder how to best manage the extra plant material on their lawns. Below are our tips for leaf management:

Go natural. Allow plant material to break down naturally in your lawn or garden. The nutrients in decomposing plant material enriches your soil and prepares your landscape for warmer seasons.

Protect storm drains. Never blow plant material into your street or alley, as rain washes yard waste down the storm drain. Storm drains lead directly to our streams and creeks without filtration. Excess nutrients from discarded yard waste can cause dangerous algae blooms which negatively affect water quality and wildlife.

Skip the trash cart. Still want to rake your leaves? Plant waste does not belong in your trash or recycling carts but is collected on your regular curbside service day! Place plant materials, such as grass clippings and leaves, in paper yard waste bags (plastic bags are not accepted) and set them on the curb. Up to ten (10) yard waste bags are accepted per week.

Compost made easy. The City of Frisco partners with Texas Pure, North Texas Municipal Water District’s regional composting program, to recycle your yard waste into nutrient-dense compost and mulch. Frisco residents can purchase this compost and mulch at a steep discount!
You've got questions and our Licensed Irrigators have answers.

This week's question:

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

Beginning January 2023 WaterWise will implement 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.

Appointments are currently being accepted for 2023.  

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.
