We had two Chilean mesquite trees in our frontyard that had to be removed as the debris was a bit too much to handle as time went by. First, the tiny leaves would fall, second, the the pollen came and third, the seed pods fell. I will admit they were beautiful and when we had them pruned once a year, our neighbors loved the wood for their outdoor cooking.

And true, once established, we only watered them once a month as they are quite drought tolerant.

They are wonderful trees, but MESSY!!!!

First you have the spring leaf drop, when whatever leaves were unshed last fall drop.
Then you have the pollen drop.
Then you have the bean drop.
Then you have the fall leaf drop where some of the leaves fall off every week for a while.
You may, in a cold winter, have a winter freeze make all the leaves drop, but it's unlikely.

At various times of the year, you have the sap dripping into amber icicles from old pruning wounds.

============
Overwatering, and failure to water deeply and widely are the two main causes of these trees falling over and developing too-heavy top growth. Our trees have had NO WATER in the past 30 or so years, except what falls from the sky or from the neighbor's sprinklers.

Water them deeply to get them established, then quit.

Hi,
These are pretty standard lights cast into the steps. A good resource is here; http://www.cooperindustries.com/content/public/en/lighting/brands/lumiere/step_lights.html
