    Scattering Garden: “Together Forever”

    With this option, a couple’s ashes can be scattered together forever in our beautifully peaceful scattering garden.

    Simple Scattering

    Mountain view landscapeAt Rest Ashured, we know that in some situations, you may simply be looking for a way to respectfully put ashes to rest without a great deal of cost or ceremony. For those instances, we offer our “Simple Scattering” service. We will show you how to obtain your own proper USPS-regulation packaging materials. Then, once we’ve received your shipment, we will reverently (and legally) scatter the ashes on our beautiful mountaintop site in Virginia. You’ll receive a certificate of release designating the date and location of the scattering. This option may be ideal for cases where the goal is to respectfully and correctly lay ashes to rest at a minimal cost, with no family members in attendance. This service is just $99. (Nor further discounts are available with this option.) Here’s how to obtain the proper packing materials for transporting the urn to us.

We offer several types of services for our Scatter Garden. We can scatter the ashes of an individual, or, in appropriate circumstances, we can also scatter the ashes of a couple together. (If you are currently planning as part of your own last wishes, you can reserve our services for a future date. We offer this service for both individuals and couples.)

The Process

After you select one of our Scatter Garden services, we’ll contact you to finalize the details. You’ll receive a package from us that includes everything you need to ship the ashes to us. This includes:

  • Boxes
  • Label
  • Tape
  • Simple Instructions

You can ship this back to us from your local post office.  If you prefer, we do provide personal pickup for certain areas. You can select this separately below.

Once we receive your package, we’ll conduct an unattended scattering ceremony. Afterward, we’ll send you a Certificate of Release. This marks the date and exact location of the scattering of your loved one’s remains.

You can Rest Ashured with the knowledge that your loved one will be laid to rest with dignity and respect.

About Our Property

Our Scattering Garden is surrounded by the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains with a view overlooking portions of the James River. Nearby, a soothing waterfall provides sounds of rest and tranquility. This harmonizes with nature’s sounds of the birds and wildlife that live in and around this bluff. At Rest Ashured, life is undisturbed to highlight the awe of the Creator’s handiwork each day.

Days of Celebration

We encourage you to visit your loved one’s final resting place during our Days of Celebration. We hold these events twice a year in the spring and fall. This is a beautiful time to see your loved one’s memorial, and to reflect on their life.
