Options help clients decide how large a job to undertake, and decide which details seem of good value.

Costs are often inter-related.
Things can be cheaper while crews are already on site,
for example, extra concrete for another patio.

Other things are not much cheaper at all, and could be done later for about the same price,
for example, cedar fencing.

The base price can be set as
the smallest project clients would undertake.  
Then, we price a "laundry list" of other ideas :

" While you're here, how much to also do this ___ "
" How much to upgrade that to ____ "
