    This achievement is probably easiest done on any level of
    whack-a-zombie. All you need to do is let a zombie in each row get to the lawnmower, and then continue to just whack the zombies until the level is over.

    Anytime early in the game after you've obtained the shovel, simply dig up all your plants when you get the final wave warning. In the early chapters the final waves aren't very big and when each lawnmower is triggered it will clear all the zombies on that row (which, by they time they get to the mower, should be all that the final wave will send.)

    Another way to get this is on the first level that you have a full lawn. Just store up Sunshine and patiently wait for a Zombie to march down each row, then begin planting Sunflowers when the Lawnmower has been used, then play as normal, Achievement pops up at the end of the level.
