When a loved one is cremated, families are ultimately left with the decision of whether or not to scatter the ashes. This choice is personal, with no right or wrong answer. If you are considering cremation but are stuck on a location to do so, then we suggest that you consider scattering the ashes in a cremation garden. Read on to learn more about the benefits of doing so! Our funeral homes in Lecanto, FL are always open and ready to help all who walk through our doors. We hope that you will give us a call or stop by for a visit so that we may discuss all of the services that we offer. We look forward to hearing from you!


One of the biggest benefits of choosing to scatter your loved one’s ashes in a cremation garden is the fact that you can be reassured that you are doing so legally. What we mean by this is that typically when people choose to scatter their loved one’s cremains in a location, they are often unaware that it is illegal to do so without permission depending on the location. To avoid this, people choose to use cremation gardens as scattering ashes in that location is exactly what the garden is intended for. If you are someone who values peace of mind and prefers to play it safe, then we recommend you look into cremation gardens. For those who choose to scatter their loved one’s ashes in a place without proper permission ahead of time, they can risk things like fines and perhaps even a visit from the local authorities. Since scattering the deceased’s remains is a somber and meaningful occasion, it could be a good idea to choose a location, such as a cremation garden, where you know you are legally allowed to be doing what you are doing.

 Quiet & Beautiful 

Another reason why so many people are drawn to cremation gardens is the fact that they are stunningly gorgeous and quiet. Unlike public places, cremation gardens are not overrun with random people who are busy with their own unrelated activities. The good thing about cremation gardens is that everyone that you encounter there will be there for the same reason as you. In this way, you can feel a sense of comfort in the understanding that you are not alone. Being surrounded by others can lead to a feeling of connectedness and remind you that you are not alone in your grief. Plenty of people go through the difficult emotions brought on by grief every day, so by participating in an ash scattering ceremony at a cremation garden you are allowing yourself not only to be vulnerable but to have a shared experience with strangers as well. 


Many people also enjoy the fact that they can visit their loved ones any time that they want to due to the convenience of a cremation garden. This is why it’s a good idea to do proper research ahead of time about where you’d like the cremation garden to be in relation to your home. We suggest picking something that is a convenient distance away so that visiting your loved one does not turn into a huge inconvenience.
