Watering Advice 

Why is the City of Frisco's Lawn Watering Advice Useful?

With Stage 3 drought restrictions in full effect, it is more important than ever to reap the benefits of rainfall and local weather patterns. Weekly weather conditions can greatly affect a lawn's watering requirement.

Frisco’s WaterWise Emails provide lawn watering advice based on data collected from the City’s weather station and rain gauges. This weekly information can help you maintain your landscape and water more efficiently. See how this information is determined below.
