Impression Rail

Are you looking to give your garden deck a sleek, contemporary finish? Do you want a decking balustrade system that won't succumb to rust, dilapidation, and wear and tear? If so, we'd very much like to introduce to TimberTech's new Impression Rail system!

Impression Rail is an aluminium railing solution that makes the perfect accompaniment for TimberTech composite decking. Supplied in a stylish black colour that looks striking and modern in any setting, the Impression Rail system offers deck owners the following benefits:

  • Since the decking balustrade is made of sturdy, rust-free aluminium, it requires practically zero maintenance.

  • An Impression Rail is a great finishing touch for your TimberTech deck - it has a contemporaryeye-catching appearance that's sure to complement your garden wonderfully.

  • Surrounding a raised deck with a decking balustrade/handrail is a great way to ensure the safety of those who use the space.

  • The Impression Rail system is easy to install...although our professional installers will be more than happy to handle the task for you if necessary!

If you're looking for an attractive, low-maintenance balustrade system for your garden deck, Impression Rail from TimberTech is an absolutely superb choice. Click here for further details, or contact TimberTech for a quotation.

While our garden decks alone are enough to reinvigorate your garden space, they are made even better by adding some great garden accessories to help set them off! From planters to shelves, there are some fantastic ornamental garden accessories to be found online, a few of which we've listed below to give you some ideas!

Luxurious Planters From Foras

These incredible slate planters lend and air of sleek modernity to your deck, while also adding a hint of natural glamour with their enchanting marbled appearance. The combination of design and quality makes them an excellent choice for your deck, providing you with an impressive way to display your plants.

Pretty and Practical Cushions From Izabela Peters 

If you would like to use your deck as a dining or seating area, a great way to make it feel extra homely is by adding some colourful cushions. While you may be concerned that soft furnishings won't withstand the damp climate, you needn't worry with these cushions, which are as resilient to rain as our own garden decking! Treated with an anti-fungal agent and easily wiped clean, these lovely, floral cushions are the perfect way to perk up your outdoor seating. 

 Quirky Vintage Deckchairs From Hen & Hammock

While an ornamental deckchair from your local antique shop may look great on your deck, they will often be to fragile to use, remaining purely ornamental in value. We know that deck space is valuable to our customers, as is their safety, which is why we tracked down these lovely vintage style chairs from Hen&Hammock. Preserving the retro-chic look of the seaside while remaining safe and practical, these chairs are a great choice for garden parties and picnics!

  Ornamental Display Stands from Perrywood 

If you're looking for a clever and unusual way to create stunning flower displays, then why not get one or both of these quirky stands from Perrywood? The delightful, little pushcart-shelf on the left is perfect for adding lots of little terracotta pots, while the bike planter makes an excellent and unusual way to arrange clusters of flowers. 

 Steel and Rose Watering Can From Gardens2You

We love items that are both pleasing to the eye and handy for maintaining the garden, which is why we had to include this lovely steel watering can on our list. The vintage style of the can adds a healthy dose on nostalgia to your outdoor space, while the rose gold details bring a unique modern touch to the garden accessory. Thanks to the whether resistant quality of the material, it can also withstand the more unforgiving conditions, allowing you to have it on display and at-hand all year round!

Garden deck with dining set

Your garden is probably the last thing on your mind at this time of year. And, frankly, we don't blame you - it's the middle of January! Most sensible Britons haven't set foot in their back gardens since Bonfire Night.

But while January may seem like an odd point at which to start thinking about doing up your outdoor space, it's actually the perfect time to do so if you want to make the most of your garden in spring and summer. Big home improvements don't happen overnight, and anyone who's thinking of overhauling the garden in 2016 - by adding some garden decking, for example - would do well to start planning those changes now.

So where to start?

If you'd like to add a deck to your home in spring 2016, we recommend that you order some free samples now and start thinking about which boards and which colour/style you'd like to use. This will give you ample time to finalise your deck design and get everything installed in time for the start of springtime, allowing you to dedicate the warmer months entirely to enjoying your new addition!

Any questions? Get in touch with the TimberTech team today!

One of the many benefits of adding a beautiful decked area to your outdoor space is having somewhere to entertain your friends and family in style. Whether you want to host an evening garden party during the summer, or simply want a lovely view of your outdoor space during the cold winter months, there is a multitude of ways that you can light up your decking, making it look just as good by night as it does by day! 

Beautiful Hanging Lights 

Hanging lighting is a great way to light your decking from overhead, adding a touch of homeliness to your outdoor space. 


We love this unusual crochet style light from The Worm that Turned, as it brings a touch of indoor, vintage chic outside!

Fire Pits

These not only allow you to add a stunning, warm glow to your deck but also allow you to keep warm when things get chilly! 


Who needs camping trips, when you can create a cosy fireside space from your own garden deck? We love this durable fire pit from Arpe Studio at Not on the High Street, as it blends rustic style and modern design beautifully!

Light Plants

Believe it not, adding extra light to your garden isn't all about the lighting itself! In fact, adding light coloured flowers or foliage to your garden will help to reflect both natural and artificial light, making them ideal additions for brightening up your space.


If you're looking to add some light to your garden via the plants you choose to display, why not go for some white Hydrangeas and light-leaved plants like the Siberian bugloss or 'Jack Frost' as it's more commonly known.

Fairy Lights

Fairy lights are a classic choice for outdoor lighting, thanks to their versatility and the range of options available! With such a wide variety of styles, lengths and power options, you're sure to find a set to suit your needs! 


The Lights4Fun lantern lights from Not on the High Street are a fantastic way to inject a dose of festival chic into your decking area.

Do it Yourself!

There's tons of inspiration available for making your own outdoor lighting solutions, so have a browse online and get crafty! 


We love these pretty firefly lanterns, from 'Home Made Simple' by Joanna Gosling.

Inbuilt Deck Lights 

As well as adding additional accessories, you can also purchase deck lights to install with your TimberTech decking, giving you the ability to light up your deck at the flick of a switch!
