disable xfce4 desktop icons/control

is there any way i can tweak xfce4 to no longer draw the destkop?, ive set up a look and feel i like that renders desktop icons completely useless and the existance of the desktop interferes with animated wallpapers id like to use in the background

Not sure exactly what you want, but you can easily remove the icons from the desktop. That's in the settings. Applications Menu > Settings > Desktop > Icons tab, and uncheck everything. If you want more than that, you can disable the Xfce window manager.
