When a mortgage requires hazard insurance at a minimum of 80% of the insurable value of "improvements", what does "improvements" mean?

The stuff that's built on the land. House, garage, deck, patio, poolhouse, guest cottage, etc.

So if you meet the requirement for hazard insurance if you have "hazard insurance for the unpaid principal balance as long as it equals at least 80% of the insurable value of improvements", that means that the mortgage balance equals 80% of the value of the home, including any improvements?

Actually, could "improvements" mean any improvement to the land? That would make sense.
