With 3000 sun given, the player has more options than usual to plan out a defense. The player can save some sun to use Perfume-shroom to make the level easier. However, the dinosaurs attack very quickly, and the player should have a strong defense going into the level.
- The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Strike from Behind
- Created by Yuanyc06
Plant one column of Wall-nuts on the first column, and then two columns of Celery Stalkers on the second and third column, and finally a column of Spikerocks on the ninth (right most) column. Let's rock! the Spikerocks will kill all basic zombies and Imps; the zombies that survive from the Spikerock will be killed by the Celery Stalkers from the third column; and the zombies carried by pterodactyl will be killed by the Celery Stalkers from the second column. No Plant Food, Perfume-shroom and lawn mower needs to be used.

Plant one column of Potato Mines in the first column. Then plant Electric Blueberries in the next three columns. Finally plant one row Wall-nuts in the fifth column. When the Jurassic Gargantuar comes, stall him with Primal Wall-nuts until he is electrocuted. No Plant Food or lawn mower needs to be used.
Bulbs, Tiles and Mines
- Created by Bush555
This strategy can be use in Days 22 and 27. Firstly, plant a column of Bowling Bulbs on the second column. Secondly, plant a column of Wall-nuts on the third column. Thirdly, plant a column of Potato Mines on the first column. Lastly, plant three Tile Turnips on the first, third, and fifth Bowling Bulbs from top to bottom. You will have 875 sun left.
The extra sun can be very helpful because you can use Perfume-shroom on dinosaurs and/or for repairing Wall-nuts, but use wisely. When you see first three Jurassic Fossilheads, use the Plant Food on a Bowling Bulb on a tile. Almost at the end of the wave, use Plant Food again on a Bowling Bulb on a tile. At the end of the wave, use Perfume-shroom on the lane where the Jurassic Gargantuar attacks. Use Plant Food again on a Bowling Bulb on a tile against zombies that are still on the lawn. Use Cherry Bomb if zombies are still on the lawn. No premium plants and lawn mowers need to be used.
Powerful Red Stingers
- Created by Comicboss4000
- Required plants:
- Put two columns of Red Stingers on the second and third columns.
- Place Tile Turnip on three of the Red Stingers that are on the second column.
- Put Potato Mines on the column closest to the lawn mowers.
- Place five Wall-nuts or boosted Wall-nuts on the fourth column.
- Place five Celery Stalkers on the sixth column.
Throughout the level, if the first, third, and/or fifth column looks all packed up with zombies and you seem to be in trouble, use Plant Food on the middle Red Stinger. The Power Tiles will do the rest. Also, this strategy is not guaranteed to not let you lose lawn mowers, so be prepared to plant extra Celery Stalkers or Potato Mines in the level if Raptors or Stegosauruses kick the zombies too far in your defenses.
Divert, Block and Spike
- Created by SaveTheLawnMower
Use the following diagram to plant the following:
(Legend: L=Laser Bean, G=Garlic, S=Spikerock, C=Chard Guard, T=Tall-nut, O=empty space)
Start the wave. Laser Bean will help kill the Jurassic Imps and Jurassic Zombies from eating the Garlic. The Chard Guard will render the pterodactyl's backward zombies useless in eating the Tall-nuts. Use Plant Food on the Tall-nuts if there are too many zombies eating it. Watch carefully when any Tall-nut develops cracks on its left side as zombies may block the view of it.
After the final wave, use Perfume-shroom on the first lane raptor with the Jurassic Gargantuar. Make sure the raptor is further away from the ninth column, or it will kick too many zombies and disappear. There will also be a pterodactyl in the fifth lane. Use a Cherry Bomb to kill the zombies in the fifth lane or Laser Bean's Plant Food ability. Finally, kill any surviving zombies with a final Cherry Bomb.
