The deeper the roots, the less of a slave you'll be to watering and the more drought resistant your lawn will be. I'd try watering every 4 days during the hottest part of the year, applying water for the same length of time as you're doing now. Your lawn should thrive on about one inch of water per week.

Best wishes with your lawn!
