I am not sure about transformer height. All I can find on transformer height and width is work space requirement of 3'x3'.

Im not going to tell anyone how to run their business, but I will chime in and say I have never once seen a complete low voltage system that would have passed NEC code. This applies to more than just low voltage outdoor lighting.

I've seen so much jack leg wiring over the years it would blow your mind , both Line Voltage and LV and a lot of it done by home owners , Imagine putting your family and home at risk.
