The data from Frisco’s weather station recommends watering once this week for .4 inches, on your regularly scheduled trash collection day.

Time-of-day Watering Guidelines
Irrigation controllers should be set to run before 10 a.m., or after 6 p.m. during Daylight Saving Time (DST). Running your sprinklers in the early morning and evening helps minimize water loss due to evaporation.

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).

Frisco is both beautiful and bustling. From soaring stadiums to preserved prairies- we’ve got it all. Visionary planning is important to our residents, and city leaders take this into account at all levels of municipal government. You can witness one shining example of planning for the future while driving through Frisco. Have you noticed the planted boulevards and traffic dividers? We hope so! 

While these lovely grassy areas provide curb appeal, they also fit into a larger design that helps protect our watershed, and control stormwater runoff. These rain harvesting zones, also known as bioswales, help absorb and slow down rain water by mimicking our historic prairie landscape.  Additionally, the City of Frisco encourages the use of permeable paving in parking lots and roadways, which allows a portion of runoff to infiltrate the surface and soak directly into the ground. 

Together, these areas help prevent flooding, and filter water, which helps protect our watershed by catching pollutants before they enter local creeks and streams. So, the next time you’re driving around Frisco, take a moment to appreciate the form and function of our bioswales.
You've got questions. Our licensed irrigators have answers.

This week's question:

The City irrigator identified a leak in my irrigation system. Can you suggest someone I should contact to have it repaired?

Answer: 
We are not able to recommend one irrigation or landscaping company over the other. So instead we've assembled a list of licensed and insured companies who are registered to work in the City of Frisco.

If you are a member of a company not on this list that should be, please contact Ron Garcia at RGarcia@friscotexas.gov.

Water levels in Lavon Lake, our primary water source, remain low. Residents are asked to continue limiting outdoor water use and follow specific guidance from their local provider regarding the timing and frequency of irrigation.
