IndiangrassThe City of Frisco is considering an prairie art installation entitled "Prairie Bells" by Bill and Mary Buchen of Son Arc, Inc as part of the Preston Road Phase 2 project.  The proposal includes landscaping with native prairie grasses and flowers, a "bell tree", and "a wind twister."

From the city’s project description: "Prairie Bells" celebrates the rolling tall grass Blackland prairie that the City of Frisco sprang from and commemorates each year since its founding in 1902.  …  Prairie habitats remain vital to Frisco’s future environment conservation as to its past.  Prairie Bells invites the public to explore the grasses and native plants surrounding the artwork.
