Just a suggestion: From the picture that you have shown it looks like a large distance from the transformer at the house to the fixtures along the driveway. Would it not make sense to run 120v out to the middle of your proposed lighting scene and install a below grade transformer?
With the transformer located there it would allow you to expand on your lighting scene. It looks as though there are nice groups of trees at the driveway entrance that would make a grand entrance onto the property.
Just a thought for you....

It's possible, but I'm not to keen on inground transformers. I guess a hub like I'm looking for doesn't exist?

Whiffy,

Instead of an inground transformer, check out ... SEBCO... they are in Calif. .and make a great rock transformer in 300 w or 600 w. I have used them many times and have had excellent results. They blend in nicely within a planting bed.. or at the base of one of those trees even...You can plug them in or hard wire them to the 110 volts via an in ground electrical vault ( like a valve box but tamperproof)...

I think they are in San Diego and you want to talk to Sam Jr... I think they are going on vacation next week so might want to call tomorrow ... check website at sebcoindustries.com

Your question was answered already, it's perfectly acceptable to daisy chain LEDs. LED bulbs can have an acceptable voltage range from 8 to 18. Do a little math, im assuming your using some kind of multi tap transformer. Figure out your wire size and your tap..

Im aware of that. I've figured it all out already. I was just still interested in finding a hub for other projects
