Gas code: Water spigot clearance

Hi,

I'm getting my contractor to put a water spigot in my backyard, which is where my gas meter is located. What's the clearance I need to avoid a violation?

Unless you were my useless builder and cut every hole 1-2" bigger than it needed to be. 3" vent pipe? Better cut a 5" hole. 1/2" pipe? Better cut out 2.5". Oh, and spray foam costs money so just cover it up with siding.
