By all means install radials ! 
Cut grass one notch lower/shorter than normal. RAISE deck. Buy Vinyl
Coated bobbie Pins at drug store. 
Cut radials for 20 & 15 for now. (10m will see the 20m radials.)
Pin to earth with bobbie pins as required to keep flush to ground, ie,
3-5 ft.
In  2-3 mos., grass thatch takes over. A pair of pliers will neatly push
pins in soil.

At least 20 radials for now. Chart SWR etc. When SWR does NOT change with
rainfall, you can rest for a while.
