    A different way to the above solution would be to play the level normally, killing all the zombies then once the "final wave" warning comes at the end, dig up everything. That way, when the zombies get to the lawnmowers, they'll mow up the whole wave and end the level for you.

    I recommend completing this achievement in Adventure Mode.

    I unlocked this achievement at the end of level 1-3, but it can also be done in level 1-2.

    First, plant one sunflower. Accumulate as many suns from this sunflower as you can. DO NOT plant anything else. Once the zombies begin to attack, they will walk straight into the lawnmowers. The lawnmowers will kill all of the zombies in their path.

    After a lawnmower has been used, begin to plant sunflowers (I planted two at the rear) and peashooters in that row. Repeat this pattern after each lawnmower has been used. You should easily be able to kill all of the zombies after the lawnmowers have been used.

    The achievement will unlock at the end of the level.

    THIS GUIDE WILL GET YOU THE ACHIEVEMENT BEFORE STARTING THE MAIN GAME


    This can be done on the very first tutorial level. when you have only one strip of lawn and only one lawnmower to activate.

    When directed to plant two pea shooters, plant them in the two nearest spots next to the hedge. Then the wave will begin, 2 or 3 zombies. they will eat through the peashooters and continue toward the house. However they will not make it before the final wave starts. Leave the zombies to make their way to the lawnmower, allowing more zombies onto the screen. When the lawn mower is activated it should take all but one zombie out. Simply plant another peashooter right next to the house to kill the last zombie.

    Achievement Pops.

    Check my gamer card,it's the first achievement i got. I unlocked this before i had planted ten peashooters!

    I don't think it'll work for the console version because the achievement description specifies "when all 5 lawnmowers have been activated....".
