Scatter Garden Planning


You can reserve our ash scattering services as part of your end-of-life planning and will. With this service, you reserve:

  • Ash Scattering on our private property
  • Memorial Stone with your name 
  • Certificate of Release

After we receive your ashes, the memorial stone will be updated with the appropriate dates for your lifespan.


When the time comes, your ashes will be scattered with care on our private property, which overlooks the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and portions of the James River.  An engraved Memorial Stone inscribed with “In memory of  (your name)”, will be placed in the scatter garden.

The Process

When you select this option, we’ll record your order in our records. We’ll also order your memorial stone engraved with your name. We’ll place this stone in our garden to reserve your place. 

At the appropriate time, the person who is handling your affairs will contact us. We’ll ship them a package with all the necessary materials to package and send your remains. This includes:

  • Boxes
  • Label
  • Tape
  • Simple Instructions

They can choose to ship this from a local post office, or contact us for personal pickup. After we receive your ashes, we’ll spread them at your designated place with care and dignity.

Finally, we’ll send a Certificate of Release recording the date and exact location of your remains.

Your loved ones can visit and remember your life during our Days of Celebration. We hold these twice a year, in the spring and fall. 

Our Mountain View property is still very much in its natural state and cleared only enough to enhance the breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and portions of the James River.  While there are no words to truly describe it, these are a few of our favorites:

“Early morning clouds often settle at eye level across the river, nestled in the ridges of neighboring mountains. The nearby waterfall provides a soothing sound of rest and tranquility. The breeze on your face is as constant as the abundant wildlife just living life in and around this bluff. Later, a spectacular sunset over majestic mountains will take center stage. But 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. Just another day in awe of the Creator’s handiwork.”
