So I recently bought some land at it looks like I've got a bunch of asbestos laying around the future house (and garden) site. Great. There was probably an old fibro shack that got blown over in a storm many years ago, and then forgotten about until a bulldozer came along and smashed it up, leaving shards of the stuff scattered about the soil everywhere. I can go around and pick up every bit I can find (following safe handling procedures, double wrapping, etc etc) and take it to the dump, but I'm wondering whether I should be worried about the inevitable little bits and chips remaining which I can't find now. Should I be worried? I know it's the asbestos dust/fibres which are the dangerous part. If I want to be gardening this soil for the next 50 years do you think I'm putting myself at grave risk? I'm imagining things like - maybe there are little bits of dust/fibers in the soil now everyone, and every time I hit it with the chipping hoe it will float up into the air I breathe...??
