    This is a 2 part request (front and backyard). In the front I have an existing kit (https://www.voltlighting.com/landscape-lighting-kits-complete/c/11) w a 100W transformer that came w my kit rather than the current 150W transformer in the current offering.
    I'm planning on reallocating the current 100W transformer to the backyard and getting a bigger one for the front.
    My current setup is in yellow.

    What I'm thinking; spot lights in green (what type and angle?) and pathway lights in pink (wattage?).

    For the path lights, whereas the 2W or 3W would likely be ideal for your front yard, I'd recommend considering a 3W or 4W for the path lights around the patio. Overall the brighter options will provide more functional illumination for activities and safety.

    For uplighting the palms, any one of our 12V Lamp-Ready LED Spotlights could really be used - the All-Star and Top-Dog spotlights are some of our top sellers and a popular budget-friendly option is the Fat Boy Spotlight. Those trees could be beautifully illuminated with either really - a 5W or 7W LED with a narrow 15-degree beam angle would be ideal for the LED bulb.
