Perennials are a great way to add color to your landscape without a lot of maintenance. Typically, these plants bloom for 7-8 months, and come back year after year. To ensure your plants remain healthy, perform routine maintenance on your perennials in the winter!

Trimming your perennials encourages growth and blooms. Below are two methods to try on your plants this season:
  • Pruning is the practice of cutting back a plant, generally by one-third of its size. This practice can encourage spring growth. 
  • Deadheading (during the bloom season) is the practice of removing dead flower heads from the plant. The type of trimming encourages the production of new flowers, rather than the production of seeds, and can lengthen the bloom season. 
Remember Frisco, a little bit of work in the winter can lay the foundations for a bright and colorful WaterWise spring.
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.

Valve Locate Services

Conserve water and save money! For a limited time, WaterWise Licensed Irrigators are offering a FREE Irrigation Valve Locate Service. During this visit, our irrigators will attempt to locate irrigation valves, test your solenoid and rain/freeze sensor, and reset your controller if needed. Use the myFrisco app or call 972-292-5800 to schedule your appointment today!

Please note that due to time constraints, irrigators will not be able to perform a full Sprinkler System Check-up or find broken or nicked wires during a Valve locate appointment.
