After sandblasting: Is sand residue around home dangerous?

We recently had our house exterior sandblasted to prep for new stucco. They used "silver sand" (silica?) workers cleaned up pretty good all-around, but left a few inches of sand residue in the dirt beds around the house. Is this sand media still dangerous in that form (lying around in the dirt?) ... Or only while the sandblasting process is going on?

After sandblasting: Is sand residue around home dangerous?

The dust from the process should not be breathed, but once the dust clears, the stuff on the ground is not dangerous. Actually probably good for the soil.
