Excavation exceeding 1.5 m in width, as well as IO m^2 on plan but not exceeding 300 mm in depth, shall be described as 'surface excavation' and measured in square metres.

Trimming of ground surface to remove small inequalities not exceeding I50 mm deep shall be described as surface dressing and measured in square metres.
