    Hi, I got some soil from someone local giving it away for filling our garden before we sow grass seed. After laying some of this soil I noticed some small clumps that in honesty look like compressed grass/moss, however it looks a bit fibrous and is brown/greyish in colour. Any opinions on whether this could be asbestos? Thanks!

    Ok thanks all. I'll look to contain this particular piece of "grasbestos" and not worry any more about it!
