Is rust bad for soil?

Bottomless_Pit | Jun 15, 2010 07:02 PM

I've been thinking, my dad likes to bury junk and so did the people living in the house decades ago. Is rust bad for my garden? My dad buried rusty pipes inside the raised garden beds in order to support the boards. My dad also put rusty pipes around the outside of the beds too. I'm not sure what the metal is, I'm assuming lead or iron.
