For weekly maintenance we usually have a team of 2 or 3 employees. Depending on the size of the house we have 1 or 2 landscapers cutting the lawn and the remainder of the team supporting by weedwacking, blowing leaves, and picking up twigs and other foliage. For other jobs such as mulching or tree removals the size of the teams and numbers of trucks will vary. For under 7 yards of mulch you can expect a 2-3 man team. Anything over that you can expect a 4-6 man team.
