Thank you both! I live in southwest Louisiana and it gets insanely hot here (more humidity-driven than actual temperature, especially compared to our desert states). I wonder if there are any hybrids available that offer the same height/visual softness AND hot weather hardiness.

You have a couple of choices. Bermuda grass which is usually started from plugs. It can be cut short, but if left longer it is easier to maintain. It doesn't need a lot of water but shouldn't be allowed to dry out completely. It doesn't do well in shade. Centipede grass which is disease resistant and aggressive. It is not a deep green color and the blades are thicker like fescue. It needs a bit more water. Then there is zoysia grass. It is also planted in plugs and takes 3-4 years to fill in completely. When it does, it makes a thick wear resistant lawn. It crowds out weeds. You don't have to mow it often as it is a slow grower. It doesn't like shade. It is disease resistant, needs little water or fertilizer. Max mowing height on zoysia is 2".

Simple, natural flagstone patio under oaks- again they are keeping plants and irrigation away from the trunks of the oaks.
