    Paranoia warning ahead!

    I've taken up the decking in my back garden and there is a black fibrous membrane underneath. The decking was put down about 15 years ago (I believe - I've not been in the house that long) so I can't believe that there would be any asbestos in the membrane but thought I'd check with the learned members of the forum.

    Membrane fibres - surely can't be asbestos?

    The above shot is where the membrane has been bunched up against the fence. In general it is flat and covered with stones.

    Thanks.

    Looks like just a weed suppression membrane to me, from here looks like nowt to worry about.

    Probably Terram, but assuredly just landscape fabric not asbestos
