Park Adobe Wall
A generous resident of South Valley is underwriting the construction of a beautiful adobe wall to grace the east side of our St. Edwin Park. We are excited to see it go up.
A basin is formed in the mound where water and straw are mixed with the earth.
From there blocks are made by pressing the mixture into the form.
The blocks are left to dry and harden in the sun.
The blocks are then stacked with more mud mortar inbetween. Here is one view of our rising wall.
We will cap the top of the wall with some bright green stucco. Another ribbon of stucco will be added to the base of blocks set on the footing.
