quandary over courtyard surface, new house

15 years ago

I am quite new here and we are about halfway through our new house build; we are owner/builders and our DS and DIL are the architects. Our house is a "J" shape around a courtyard, full sun in the courtyard. The house is very modern, horizontal steel siding, lots of glass around the courtyard. Most pavers are traditional in appearance and might not "speak" to our architectural style. We originally talked about concrete poured with grass-filled spacers. The landscape man we talked to today said the grass frequently dies out in such applications. This is a very sunny spot, and we live in Southern Calif where summers are very hot. Do any of you have ideas for us? We welcome and appreciate any ideas.! Also, is there a forum that you feel would be a better place to post such a plea for help? thanks!
