In my opinion for a gap of 150mm to have been recommended some body must has measured how high rain water can splash up from the ground and worked out an average. But anyway, if its how it should be, then its how it should be. If it were my house that had the higher ground levels then id want to do anything i could to lower the risk of a problem occuring. So lower the ground levels.
