does a detached garage with a subpanel and supply coming from the house need a lightening rod ? which gauge cable do you use to run a lightening rod to the ground ?

thanks. any example diagram how i should put it all together ?
and also, how deep should i go burying the grounding ? is a couple feet ok ?
i am actually talking about a diagram that shows everything, the stick on top of the building and how it is connected to the subpanel and the rod that goes into the ground.
thanks, it does. so my only question left is should the cable from the air terminals run on the outside of the shed or the inside ? i would guess outside. if inside, my question is at which point does it go outside to go into the grounding rod ?
