One of the best things about a modern day garden is decking, and for a deck to look stylish and chic, a handrail is vital. Handrail products can turn an ordinary looking deck into something very special. They help to frame a deck and provide all important safety for families. Whether it's a sleek modern look or an inherently classic style you are seeking, then it can all be obtained by adding a handrail.

Types of handrail

At TimberTech our ornamental decking handrails will allow you to craft a traditional style of beauty. These rails can be bought with some eye-catching finishes and include aluminium, which is completely rust-free. These rails are simple to install and do not require any maintenance. All that is needed is an occasional clean with soap and water.

When you combine decking with a handrail, you will transform your garden into something that could have come off the pages of 'Better Homes and Gardens' magazine. There is a timeless appeal that the handrails bring with them that will fit perfectly into any open space.

One of the most important points to look for when buying any product is the quality. Not only do these handrails look terrific, but they are also very durable. This is because our Radiance Rail System is made from composite wood, which by its definition does not need a lot of maintenance. Your dream decking will look even better with a decking handrail.

The facts about decking handrails

TimberTech's RadianceRail structure is vibrant, crisp and clean looking. There is no exposed hardware that will ruin its appearance. The colours that are available for this system are brown, black and white. For a contemporary or traditional garden, this is the perfect finishing touch. Decking looks incomplete without a chic handrail to finish it off. Radiance Rail is also perfect for adding to steps.

The market leader in the handrail sector is RadianceRail and the products are created to the same high standards as its deck boards. The company uses a PVC 'co-extruded' surface that makes a rail water resistant, strong and dense. This product will never need painting, staining or oiling.

For anybody that needs to replace a wooden handrail that has rotted away or a, less than satisfactory, PVC rail that is not very strong; then a streamlined change is recommended. Just select a new colour and style that will best fit in with what you have already got, and integrate a new handrail system into your garden. TimberTech products come with a 25-year guarantee of excellence, and will always deliver on quality.

There are a number of different ways to use lighting in your garden, but the five most common will be for safety, to increase security, to create atmosphere, create divisions between specific areas of your garden and to highlight specific features.

garden lighting


In the simplest of terms an area outside your home that is well lit at times of darkness is going to be safer. But security lighting does not have to be intrusive. Often one or two well-placed PIR security lights will allow the occupant to see out into their garden adding warmth during cold nights and adding a sense of space, whilst at the same time flooding areas of access with light.


Lighting can help to illuminate gardens during those autumnal evenings where it is still warm enough to sit out, but you need to be guided by some extra lighting. In the same way a garden pond or pool can be made much safer by illuminating it. Use lighting in your porch or above your front door or on the approach to it to decrease risk of falls and gain a greater sense of security. In a similar way, lighting doors and entrances to and from your home make the experience safer and also more welcoming from guests arriving or leaving.

Create atmosphere

The use of lighting within your home can create a variety of moods and atmosphere; so too in your garden. Use lighting to accent trees, flowers, bushes and shrubs, and create atmospheric shadows.

Divide areas

Using lighting to separate distinct areas of your garden can provide definition and broaden the feel of your garden. If you have a patio area, light it for functionality; if you have a pond, throw light onto it and not only make it less of a hazard in the dark but let it throw light off the water’s surface for a very different area of illumination. Highlight pathways and separate flower beds.

Highlight features

Use concealed or low level lighting to highlight specific areas and features in your garden. Or flood features such as ponds and pools, gazebos and archways with light to really bring them out. There are many types of outdoor lighting and it is possible to find almost anything necessary to do the job.

Make a feature of your garden path by lighting it either from above, mid height, or low level.

We have another beautiful decking project to share with you!

These images were sent in by a customer, who recently used our EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple boards to add a gorgeous decked area to their wonderful home.

The results are stunning, if we do say so ourselves. The sleek Silver Maple decking is a great match to the contemporary outdoor furniture set, and the customer did a great job of giving their new deck a green finish with wonderful shrubs!

Our EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple composite decking is a strikingly modern option that’s perfect for any garden. The boards have an attractive 'Spectrum' design that's created by putting the boards through the manufacturing process twice and layering one colour on top of the other. The results look remarkable in practically any setting!

Our Silver Maple composite decking is capped with a fully protective polymer sleeve, this means it can cope with just about anything you throw at it! A quick wipe is all that’s needed to get your boards back to looking brand new.
