The limit is marked in the landscape as a dike, embankment wall or the natural edge of the river valley. The limit is always a relative limit, as it relates to a defined high water level; as high water events are never completely predictable, theoretically a level can occur that overflows all defence systems and thus the flood limit. The height of the green line for a defined protection level is calculated based on flood probability statistics or recurrence intervals. The risk that flooding exceeds this limit can, for example, lie at the height of a statistically defined one-in-100-year flood (HQ100) – a flood that could theoretically occur only once every 100 years.

In Process Space A, for example, all the designs primarily address vertical fluctuations in the watercourse. One design strategy is to shape elements in such a way that they can be submerged when the water level rises without suffering damage. They are capable of ‘tolerating’ the rising water. Another strategy is to design elements to ‘adapt’ to rising water levels, as houseboats or floating jetties do. The spectrum of various design strategies makes it clear how many different ways there are within each Process Space of dealing with the respective water dynamics through design.

Individual, smaller biotopes thus created can offer refuges for migrating organisms, so-called stepping-stone biotopes. Furthermore, the striking contrast created by plantings along the stone embankment walls is particularly aesthetically appealing. Design measures such as shores, underwater steps or stepping stones improve access to the water and enhance the potential of these areas considerably. As a result, attractive and, due to their location at the foot of the embankment walls, often relatively intimate and secluded places can be created in the centre of towns.
