| Use copper.   This is a common commercial product used in building
| commercial AM station vertical arrays.   The product is called expanded
| copper screening.  It is sold in roles of 8X24ft.  Multiple sections are
| simply soldered together on the ground. 
| One major disadvantage exists.  It is not low cost!

Another disadvantage is that copper is toxic to most hardwoods.
If you're yard is filled with big old oak trees, copper screen will
do them in over 5 to 10 years. A good argument for elevated radials.
Don't put any copper nails in those hardwoods either.
