You should absolutely leverage your landscape lights if you have them. Its way easier and cheaper than to use the standard 120V transformer. Your landscape transformer outputs 12V AC. You need 12V DC for the LED. I recommend you get one of these to get the conversion done. It is a very small device so makes it easier to hide. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SGMW4K8.
There's also a YouTube video on how to use it, although it's fairly self-explanatory:

Unique applications of everyday lighting techniques. Look for uncommon ways to use standard lighting techniques. For instance, say you need a little illumination along a path to find your way to your destination. You could dot the path with pathlights or add some eyebrow lights to a nearby wall. Or you could make a bigger design statement. These artfully placed strip lights provide movement and interest to the night scene — as well as light the route to the front door. Take this same idea and give it a twist. Use flexible LED light tape or light rope to make sweeping lines of light inset in a wall, a patio or pool decking. Fashion a cover for the inset light tape out of glass tiles, a metal screen or custom-cut polycarbonate, or tuck the light source up under a built-in lip to finish the look. Don't limit yourself just to strip lighting when tweaking standard lighting techniques — dream up alternate uses of downlights, uplights etc. For instance, why not cut a pattern out of a piece of sheet metal, place it over an uplight and project shadow patterns on a wall? Ditto for downlights, only the pattern will dance on the floor. Caution: When modifying any light fixture, make sure the fixture doesn't overheat and cause a fire hazard.
