excessive palm seeds pods in soil

I had to remove large palm trees from my property in Nth QLD  Australia, as they were a threat to the property when cyclones threatened. The soil is fraught with multiple large palm seed pods where nothing can be grown.These are throughout  the garden beds bodering fences & pool.

How can I get rid of the spreading seed pods & and get rid of them all together and replace the top soil so I can plant some small native shrubs?

    Can you rake the pods out with a spring tine lawn rake?  If you miss any and they germinate a good sharp Dutch hoe should deal with the seedlings if you keep your eyes open and attack before they're too large.  It's how I deal with the many ash tree seedlings we get here. 

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !
