    [edited the time to wait, courtesy of comments! thanks, guys]

    I did this on 1-14. It took me five tries to get it.

    First start by releasing all your gnomes and beat down part of the right-side fence.
    It's critically important you keep the crow that shoots busy with at least one gnome beating him up. Keep all crows of this type well away from your base!
    Now let one crow to your base and start beating on it, when you get down to one health bullet left (you start with three) start counting to about 8-10 secs and now unleash a boulder to squish him. If you timed it right you should be at less that 10% health.
    Now go on the offense, don't let any crows near the base as you want to run out the clock. If any get close, use a tornado to shoo them away.
    When the round finishes, and you have less that 10% health, the cheevo pops. Congrats! If the cheevo didn't pop take a note of the % health left (it's part of your total score) - this will give you an idea of how close your were to <10%, and how much longer you can allow the single crow to beat on your base.

    MatyBeastMethod worked great. First try worked. I had 5% left. I actually let 2 crows hammer on the base until one bullet then waited 6-7 seconds. Thanks for posting this solution.
