I used to have what you might call a square foot garden back when I had
limited space and didn't want to dig up my meager yard with a bunch of
dirt rows. I had a series of 2 ft x 2 ft squares, raised bed with wood
borders and wide grassy areas in-between. Grew some spices, tomatoes,
and peppers... called it my salsa garden. I've seen some people do
similar with paving bricks in the walkways. I prefer grass.
Now I own and live in a big commercial building with no yard but a
big flat roof, so I've turned to hydroponics and potted plants.
Tomatoes and peppers do great with hydroponics. Most of the spices
are better in pots.
I'm sure this method has been used for a long time.. I read a book on
this when i was in high school.. I'm in my 30's now & in VA.. I find
that it works very well in certain applications.. Certain plants work
well together and some don't.. Some plants I prefer to give them a
"lil'' more space...
I tried a similar thing last year, putting (literally not much mor
than a square foot) a herb section at the side of my lawn.
The neighbour's dog, who used to dig holes in my lawn found my chive
much easier to dig out
