When it comes to weather, Florida is usually known for humidity and hurricanes. But now, drought is making news in the Sunshine State.


Sixty-six percent of the state is now in a drought, the highest percentage of any U.S. state, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Parts of the state north of Lake Okeechobee are now enduring "extreme" drought, the second-worst level.

If the drought persists — which is expected — this could mean major crop and pasture losses, as well as widespread water shortages and restrictions, the Drought Monitor said. Burn bans, which prohibit the burning of yard debris, campfires, and bonfires, have already been issued across the state.

The drought has escalated dramatically since early February, when none of the state was in a drought.

Beach Bum Turf was contacted to be on Flip My Florida Yard.  This TV Series flips yards in Florida using water saving techniques for yards all over Florida.  We are in the Broward County episode.

Across the country, Florida's drought is the exception: Less than 5% of the U.S. is now in a drought, the lowest percentage in at least the past 17 years. Only Florida and a portion of northern Georgia are seeing extreme drought.

By switching just a 1,000sqft of lawn to a Beach Bum Turf yard you will save between 32,000 and 56,000 gallons of water per year.
