I am planning to xeriscape a large portion of my front lawn.

What city codes should I be aware of before I get in too deep

There is nothing that would prevent some one from installing a xeriscape design and the City does encourage the use of native an adapted plants and efficient irrigation in the effort to conserve water. A permit is not required. Also HOA’s are not permitted to prevent anyone from installing a Waterwise landscape. You should keep in mind that trees are not to planted in the parkway unless it is a Type F thoroughfare that is specifically designed for street trees. You will still be required to provide or maintain the required number of trees from the large or medium shade tree list, which can be found in the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance and is based on the lot size. (see http://www.friscotexas.gov/uploadedFiles/Departments/Planning_Development/Comp_z oning_ord_92701/Article_IV/IV-02-Landscape_Requirements.pdf

I hope that helps. Please contact me if you need any further clarification.
