I want to have 4 or 5 lights installed on my new house for both practical and security purposes (carport, front walk, side of house, etc.). Who is the right person to call for this?

We had an electrician come for an estimate on some other stuff but he wasn't making me confident that this was something he could do well. He also said we should buy our own fixtures. What do I need to know about different types of outdoor lights? Spotlights vs. floodlights? Switches vs. motion vs. timed? Wired vs. solar? How do I know where they can be installed, such as if there isn't currently wiring going to certain locations?
Should I call landscapers? Specialty outdoor light designers? Another electrician?
