McCutchen Garden (Columbia, South Carolina)
Rooney Garden (Columbia, South Carolina)
Located in Columbia, South Carolina, this green and white garden features a walled garden and a raised terrace with a wall fountain and a huge live oak tree. George Betsill, landscape architect formerly with Innocenti and Webel, assisted with the design of the large side yard. The property where this garden is located was initially part of the estate of Chapelle Heath, a prominent cotton broker.
As of 2005, the live oak tree was no longer in existence on the property.
Persons associated with the property include Mrs. Thomas E. McCutchen (former owner and garden designer, ca. 1984); George Betsill (landscape architect, n.d.); Frank Barnes (gardener, ca. 1984).
