Does “Palo Verdes "desert museum" tree have thorns/needles? - I'm wondering if it has any droppings

great question...the ones I've used do not have thorns, but I've see thorns on some in other installations where the designer/contractor swears that it's a "desert museum". I believe that the "desert museum" does not have thorns.

That's a Palo Verdes "desert museum" tree, it requires very little water likes sandy/gravelish soil and sun/heat.

The beach pebble was 1" size. The white rock is the typical 3/4" white crushed gravel.

I like the little garden island and the pebble around it. We can create that using the existing posted plants in their pot but not limited to changing the plant in it instead we can use succulents that can be cohesive with the plant and color pallet
