Search in the posts because people have definitely discussed this. Some do rigid floor and walls and spray ceiling. Some do rigid everywhere and then finish up with spray to do the bits you can't cut rigid for and to cover all the seams etc.
If you get a really good quote for someone else to do all the spray for you and the trimming- closed cell, two part, take it! Apparently the trimming afterward can take way longer than the spraying. Someone in Florida got an awesome deal and the guy trimmed it for him. Apparently it needs to be hot to puff up well, so make sure to plan your build accordingly. Read the directions in terms of temperature humidity etc before buying the kit. Someone got only 1" out of what should have been 2" and he was NOT a happy camper.
Where I live there may only be a few nights in the summer where it will be above 50 degrees for the low, and this means that almost all driveway sealers are not a good choice for me. I'm expecting the same with the spray foam. The difference is that I can drive my bus to somewhere warmer to spray foam it, but my driveway ain't going anywhere. In fact, if I organize it well, I can get my driveway done while my bus is off the mountain and getting spray-foamed this summer. My driveway is way over due for sealing. I'm a big believer in following the directions on products!
