Yea, I have tried it both ways and your right, when they see details they start to question but it also depends on the customer too. The ones that question usually question whether you detail or not and usually have never worked hard in their lives or had everything handed to them.
Some people just don't understand the labor that goes into landscaping. Not to mention the time it takes driving all over town sometimes to find a plant or material etc..
