一个篱笆三个桩,一个好汉三个帮。 Yí ge líba sān ge zhuāng, yí ge hǎohàn, sán ge bāng.

Literally “A fence needs the support of three poles, and a true man needs three assistants.”
English equivalent: Many hands make light work.

Example:

别说一个大项目需要很多人参与才能完成得好;即便是搬一次家也需要亲友的帮助才行。正可谓: “一个篱笆三个桩,一个好汉三个帮”。 Bié shuō yí ge dà xiàngmù xūyào hěn duō rén cānyù cái néng wánchéng de hǎo; jíbiàn shi yícì bān jiā yě xūyào qīnyǒu de bāngzhù cái xíng. Zhèng kěwèi: “Yí ge líba sān ge zhuāng, yí ge hǎohàn, sán ge bang”.
'It goes without saying that the successful completion of a large project requires the participation of many people; even just moving house needs the help of others. Just as the saying goes, "Many hands make light work".'
