Here is a previous similar questions with answer FYI:

Certainly not the norm to tip contractors, but if you feel they did a good job or special care was taken in cleaning up behind them, you certainly can - you could give them $3-10 per worker or so (depending on how many hours they sent there) and suggest they get themselves a coffee or soda or such on their next lunch break.

Or if you want to tip by a percentage of what they make, probably around $60-150/day to maybe $200 for the supervisor would be their likely pay rate (gross, before taxes and other deductions) or maybe about $4-12/hour take-home pay depending on whether they are a trimmer or laborer and of course on local labor rates, so you could figure your desired percentage based on that if you wanted.

Another way to "tip" workers around the home, especially if there for the better part of the day or more, is providing coffee and a cooler of water bottles and soda and such or maybe lemonade or such, and maybe some cookies or donuts or such - things they can grab and go with as they work or take 5, not sit-down foods which will reduce productivity.
