The conclusion of the park is formed through a 60cm thick earthen lime wall. It defangs and bridges the different levels of the plane. On the one side, the wall is very fine and smooth on the other the surface is structured strongly, like a relief. The erosion is accelerated and it becomes a welcomed element. The wall is without a coping, the porous character of the lime makes controlled erosions and moss-growth possible, so becoming a formal principle.
