And the soil will be perfect if you have those kind of plants for the soil. The soil also has many minerals in it that is good for a lot of stuff.

Landform

My landform at the desert is kinda ruff at parts but at some it can be really smooth. The sand helps form many of the mountains and hills that you will see in the desert. The landform can also have grass and water on the surface.

Water

The desert does not get a lot of water. But it can get about 10 inches of rainfall each year. Depending on what the weather is going to be like. The rain that comes down to the desert does not last long , because the ground is so hot and dry it souks most of it up but it can also make water pounds for the animals to drink. And for the plants to have water.
