Ground enhancement materials are backfill materials that improve the conductivity of soil surrounding grounding rods, bars, grids, and plates. Conditions with high resistance include rocky and sandy soils, as well as dry and moutainous terrains, and frozen ground. Quality grounding systems will provide a low-impedance path for fault and lightning currents to ground. Typically, rods or grids are buried at the perimeter of a structure, and may need additional conductive elements in the surrounding earth to complete a circuit.
