This is one of the first achievements you can/will unlock in this game.

Without touching the main game and to make things easier, go to CONTRACTS > TUTORIALS > CONTRACT BASICS. This will automatically start up the mission THE FIRST HIT :

Follow the instructions or simply run forward (hold cn_LB) to the gate and turn left where you can see a red/white colored sign "Private Property-No Trespassing". Enter this so-called hostile area and you can already see a gardener working here. Don't pick up the wrench or the brick. Simply walk (don't run) behind the guy and as soon as you are close enough the SUBDUE (tap cn_X) action/prompt will appear. Do so and keep tapping cn_X as shown until your victim falls asleep.

DON'T PRESS cn_Y or you will break his neck and fail!!!
As soon as you are done the achievement will/should unlock.

If anything is unclear or you have some questions, feel free to post. wink
