Season 2, Episode 12

Bugging Out on Budget

Mina and Karen reach outside of their comfort zone with a house on the edge of the Bates Hendricks neighborhood. They're concerned about the location, and when they discover that the house is festering with cockroaches, they fear that they may not come out with a profit in the end. But with smart planning, a little love and a lot of hard work, Mina and Karen are hopeful they can bring new life to the neighborhood with a charming renovation.

Gray Tile Hydroponic Planter

Good Bones host Karen created this hydroponic planter using 5" PVC post covers to contain the nutrient-rich growing solution. A 4" hole-saw was used to cut holes in the container for the plants to extend through, and the front is covered with hex tiles left over from the new bathroom. Plants include bibb lettuce, red-leaf lettuce, basil, mint and tarragon.
