We tried the square foot gardening technique and it worked just fine for us. the drawback was the extra time it took for us to maintain the garden, so we went back to traditional row type gardening.

My experience is quite the opposite: it takes me much less time to weed and maintain the overall garden. Maybe it was a difference in crops: I put in potatoes, peppers, beans, carrots, parsnips, onions, and tomatoes.
