PS or anyone else reading this can answer
My customers are not persitant, in fact they never ask me to break anything down, I just signed a deal today for an interlock driveway, walkway, sidewalk, back patio, steps- front, side and back, complete sod, etc. I got it all on one page. Just sayin, that's how I do it and no one asks for more. If they want it broken down I'll describe the process involvement ie base depth, compacting etc, more than the money aspect ie brick cost, labour cost...
If I do work by the hour, then I break it down in time and materials. But I rarely do it that way, unless its repair work.
