Fixture Types And Styles
Spot lightsSpot style fixture is meant to produce a narrow beam angle as opposed to flood style fixture. MR16 LED Bulb rating also is available in narrow and wide angles. MR16 is a common retrofit bulb type available in LED for replacing halogen.
Up light a tree will require 1 or more spot lights. Spot lights can be a well light fixture (in ground level) or staked fixture (a few to several inches above ground). Tall trees should have a narrow beam angle for light to reach higher before spreading to much.
What 7 watt daylight LED in spot and flood fixtures can do.Up Lighting Buildings and trees throws a lot of collateral light around that can be good too.
Lights on stakes work best in the landscape where ground cover and shrubs are planted.
Well lights have their purpose, but are easily covered with mulch and grass clippings.
Up Lighting - A column of lightUp Light the side of a building hitting the roof over hang will use the same fixture and bulb as tree up lighting. Usually the narrowest beam angle, brightness is relative.
LED Path LightsFixture style affects light output. Some are designed to let light spread out a good distance, other fixtures are more like markers of light.

Retrofit LED Bulbs
Update existing non LED fixtures to LEDFixtures that come with halogens can be fitted with LED bulbs. For a professional job, you use an appropriate fixture and bulb of adequate brightness, with a beam angle that best fits the result you are looking for. All the different fixtures that come with halogen bulbs, can be upgraded with LED bulbs. The bottom line is; 7 - 7 watt LED bulbs = 49 watts. 7 - 50 watt halogens = 350 watts. Most 7 watt LED Bulbs outperform a 50 watt halogen. And the LEDs are available in a wider selection of light.
Retrofit LED replacements come in warm white (about 3000 Kelvins), cool white ( about 4000 Kelvins), and daylight (5000 kelvins and greater). A 7 watt MR16 LED is as bright or brighter than the 50 watt halogen equivalent.
Replacing your existing incandescent or halogen bulbs with durable LED bulbs offers numerous benefits. You enjoy an even better light performance and benefit from very low energy consumption. LEDs are available in all hues of white light. Warm white to daylight. Fixtures that come with halogens, I recommend buying LED replacements from the beginning. We just throw the halogens away.
Many fixtures come with LED built in. These are generally not replaceable, watts, light color, and beam angle should be considered.
