Another advantage of low voltage outdoor lighting is that smaller and compact fixtures are flexible and can be activated by timers, motion detection or switches. This is an advantage as compared with high or regular voltage lighting fixtures that require conduits and labor to fix wiring. The size and design of low voltage outdoor lighting fixtures help add to the aesthetics of surrounding. The reason they can be safely hidden or placed in nooks and corners, waterfalls, bushes or exterior of buildings and residences. The drawback is that to highlight a particular area more fixtures are needed. Quality also matters in that if inexpensive crack and corrode due to extreme temperature or corrosion.

You may want to consider a more enclosed outdoor lighting fixture. The good news is that there's a scale to help you figure out how waterproof/dustproof a given outdoor lighting fixture is. This rating is call an "IP Code", which stands for "Ingress Protection", and is essentially a rating of how protected the wall light is from external elements like rain and dust. There's separate scales for both dust and water, but for rain protection, you'll probably want a water rating of at least 3-4 on the scale.
