Australian Bottle Tree info help! Are there seed pods?

last year

I live in Las Vegas and am in need of shade and privacy. I’m considering planting 12 Australian bottle trees (brachychiton populneus) in a retaining wall planter that spans 120 ft. by 6 ft.

I do not want plants that make a big mess or are poisonous as I have a dog, cat and baby. I have been told by numerous people that the bottle tree does not make a mess but then I saw one site that said it produces seed pods that can be quite a pain. Anyone out there know about this tree?
