Proper Way to Patch Low Voltage Wire?

I just had my backyard wired with 10-gauge low voltage lighting. I've decided I don't like one of the spotlights and plan to remove it. Only issue is that the connector on the spotlight is one of those that "stabs" into the wire.

Once I remove the light, what is the best way to patch it? Electrical tape doesn't seem like a great idea, unless there is some sort of waterproof version I should look for? This part of the wire is near irrigation, so I want to make sure it can withstand the elements.

Try the paint on electrical tape. It's a rubber like compound that's waterproof when dry. Make sure the wire is clean and dry before applying it.
