Scattering Garden with Memorial Stone
Scattering Garden with a Personalized Memorial Stone
If you are looking for the perfect way to memorialize a loved one who had an appreciation for nature and God’s creation, ash scattering in a garden and a personalized memorial garden stone may be just the solution for you. Our property that surrounds our Scattering Garden is still very much in its natural state. It has been 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 soothing sounds 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.
Scattering Garden with Memorial Stone:
Whether family or friend– your loved one’s ashes will be released in our beautiful scattering garden with care. An engraved memorial stone will then be placed at the scatter site to serve as a constant remembrance of their life.
Frequently Asked Questions
We can say a requested prayer or verse, but it is not an actual ceremony. Our ash scattering is meant to take place after the family has held their memorial service. Likewise, we do not hold such services.
While Rest Ashured usually scatters the ashes for loved ones, please call with questions such as this. We really do try to accommodate all requests.
We do open the Rest Ashured property for two Days of Celebration, once in the spring and then in the fall. On these two days we invite family and friends to remember and celebrate their late loved one.
It is only necessary to send the ashes for us to scatter. We will provide all the packaging material necessary for it to be mailed safely to us.

You don't know what a relief it was for me to have his ashes scattered and know he was finally at peace. I thank you with all my heart.
Just wanted to write to thank you all for a great experience, even after the terrible time of my husband’s death. Everything went so smoothly, which brought me great comfort and a sense of peace. I can’t tell you how relieved I am knowing he’s at rest in such a beautiful place. He always loved the mountains….
