By bounding this measure, we are able to define both the discrete and continuous time diffusion limited aggregation (DLA) in the upper half plane with absorbing boundary conditions. We prove that for the continuous model the growth rate is bounded from above by o(t2+ϵ). Moreover we prove that all the moments are finite for the size of the aggregation. When time is discrete, we also prove a better upper bound of o(n2/3+ϵ) , on the maximum height of the aggregate at time n. An important tool developed in this paper, is an interface growth process, bounding any process growing according to the stationary harmonic measure. Together with [12] one obtains non zero growth rate for any such process.
