Utility Module: Overlapping Trench Surfaces

I have started using the Utility feature to estimate trenching and backfill quantities however I am running into issues where I am doubling up on quantities where trenches overlap. Is there a current function in the utility module that deals with overlapping trenches? Ideally I don't want them in a common trench because I still want the material between them as I would not be excavating that out. Does Trimble have a surface trimming function or what would be the best method to deal with trenches that are far enough apart that they should not be in a common trench but the side slope in each trench surface intersect?
