We created our scattering garden to provide a peaceful place for laying ashes to rest. It’s a beautiful way to say goodbye.
Our Scattering Garden services allow us to spread your loved one’s ashes on our property with dignity and respect. Our property surrounding our Scattering Garden retains its natural state. We only enhanced the breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and portions of the James River.
This extraordinary site brings new gifts throughout each hour of the day. After sunrise, early morning clouds often nestle at eye level just across the river. A nearby waterfall provides soothing sounds of rest and tranquility. The light breeze is as constant as the abundant wildlife living in and around this bluff. Later, a spectacular sunset over majestic mountains will take center stage. And after the sun goes down, the stars take over; away from the glow of city lights, the crystal-clear views of the heavens are rivaled only by those of the mountains. Here, life is undisturbed and unfiltered…revealing the awe of the Creator’s handiwork each day.

Scattering Ashes Campaign
Whether a family member or a friend, we will release your loved one’s ashes in our beautiful Scattering Garden with care and compassion. We will place an engraved and personalized memorial stone at the scatter site to serve as a constant remembrance of their life. Laying ashes to rest will be documented in a keepsake Certificate of Release, noting the date and location of the placement.
- Ashes reverently scattered in mountaintop garden.
- Engraved memorial stone placed at the site.
Scattering Garden: “Together Forever”
Rest Ashured has a new “couples” option for laying ashes to rest. We scatter their ashes at the same time and place.
With the “Together Forever” option, both ashes will be added to our scattering garden, and a joint memorial stone placed to display the couple’s names.
- The ashes of both individuals would be provided to Rest Ashured at the same time, and released at the same time. This means that the scattering would not occur until both persons have passed and been cremated. (Families would hold the first ashes until the time comes for the second.)
- A single stone will mark the scattering site, but it is large enough to hold the names and dates of both people.
Military & First Responder Discount
On behalf of a grateful family, Rest Ashured is pleased to provide a 50% discount for those whose loved one has served our great country (including prior military and first responders).
In order to receive the Condolence Code necessary for the discount, we request the appropriate documentation verifying the person’s service.
