As with most "Beat the Game" achievements, this is given for taking out the last boss (level 5-10, as with every other 10th stage you have a conveyor belt inventory scrolling the top of the screen). He may seem tough at first when you see how he can completely wreck your plants, but you can counter most of his attacks.

Pots: Initially you want to use your pots to give yourself more room to build, you'll want a few extra columns from what you're given at the start. Later, save pots for when your plants inevitably get smashed, so you can rebuild as fast as possible. I'd recommend leaving one empty pot at the front of each row for using your peppers, and to give the regular zombies something to munch on for a second while all the catapults in the row smash them.

Catapults (Lettuce, Corn/Butter, Melon): You don't really need to think too hard with the catapults, just spam them out as fast as you can until you've got all your pots full, if you've got catapults clogging up your inventory, dig up your corn catapults and replace them with the better ones.

Ice-Shroom / Jalapeño: You'll get a LOT of these, but you definitely want to save them up. Other than the summoning of zombies, the boss has 3 attacks that can destroy several plants at once; unfortunately the RV can't be blocked or stopped (as far as I know.), but the two large balls can be stopped by these plants. After the boss lowers himself to be wailed on by your attack plants, he will use one of his attacks before he stands back up, if he throws a large red ball down a row, quickly plant an ice-shroom somewhere to destroy it and save the plants on that row. The opposite works for the blue ball, place a jalapeño on that row and it will take out the ball. If you're getting backed up on these, using an ice-shroom while the boss is on the screen being hit by catapults will let you get some extra hits in before he attacks and leaves.

Knowing how to avoid his attacks should make this boss fairly easy, since you'll only have to recover from his RV toss. After the progress bar in the bottom right corner fills up from damage to the boss, you'll get the achievement, end credits music video, and be able to play more of the mini-games from the main menu.
