Mel Bartholmew was the innovator of this type of gardening. His website is the link below. You can buy his books directly from him. He had a popular PBS gardening show for many years, which is where I first found out about it.

Donna, it is a system where instead of traditional rows, you strike off your garden spot into 1 foot squares with walkways in between the planting squares. The guy (I can't remember his name)that invented the system wrote a book that is still pretty popular and I think it is still being printed & sold. The name of the book is "Square Foot Gardening". Check out or your local book seller.

My wife and I were house shopping a couple years back and came across a house where they were doing this "square foot gardening". It looked mighty unkempt, but also looked quite healthy and looked like it would yield good. The folks selling the house swore by it. No, we didn't buy the house (didn't get the job, it was a cross country move thing).
