Upgrading/replacing halogen landscape lighting?

I’d like to upgrade the landscape lighting at my house with something more energy efficient. The house is 30 yo or so and the landscape lighting are the old halogen cans. Can I just replace the bulbs? I assume it’d make sense to replace the entire fixture with a modern LED equivalent? Recommendations? Would a low voltage/LED well/can be the best option?

Yes you can replace just the bulb.

Just Google or search your favorite store site for "inground led bulb"

To give you a starting point. 12v PAR 36 LED bulb.
Something like this:
https://www.amazon.com/LED-Watt-Bulb.../dp/B06XX3LGHY

(Though I don't know that I'd recommend that specific bulb/supplier)

Thanks all- Wow... $40 per bulb? I have 10 cans or so.. which is why Iím wondering if replacing the entire fixture makes more sense?

I don't know if you want to use eBay but I found These if you do get them make sure you pick the same color temperature for all 10 fixtures and pick the appropriate one for your application. Warm White should be closest to the original look of the halogen ones while Daylight will look like a cold bright white
