Those of us who use vertical antennas for our ham radio stations know the importance of having a good ground radial system.  Ground radials supply "the missing half" of our quarter wavelength vertical antennas and make those antennas more efficient.

Installing ground radials can be quite a task, especially if you want more than the bare minimum ground radial system.  In this video, Rich Rodgers uses an electric edger to dig  fairly straight groves to lay his radial wires.  You may want to keep the wires flat with plastic lawn staples available at many hardware stores.  This seems to be a good way to install ground radials.
