A combination of all 3 may be most ideal.
Uplighting the facade and adding some path & area lights to the garden bed(s) could look beautiful.
Any of our classic LED path lights could look beautiful in the beds (marked in blue).
Any MR16 uplights could be ideal for the facade (marked in yellow). We offer Lamp-ready spotlights and lamp-ready in-ground lights. In-ground lights conceal the light sources more, but spotlights typically offer more adjustability and customization; it would come down to personal preference. For the bulb wattages, I'd likely recommend no higher than 3W LED MR16s. Recommended beam spreads (from left to right): 110 degree for the wide wall on the side of the garage, 38-degree, then two 60-degrees for the right side. 2700K is the most common color temperature for residential applications (warm-white).
For adding illumination to the gable on the right side, you could consider using a gutter mount kit and a mini LED spotlight (marked in green).
For the garage area, you already have a decent amount of illumination - the only concern may be the gable looking dim in comparison to the right side. Not ideal, but you could consider converting that lantern light to a sconce style light fixture which offers upwards and downwards illumination simultaneously (marked in red). We offer a low-voltage (12V) brass/bronze sconce, but you'd likely want to replace with a line-voltage (120V) version.
