All the leaves have fallen off my vine. Only the bracts are left. It is near my lawn that is watered daily. How do I make it more healthy.

Try pruning back your bougainvillea to promote healthy new leaves. Overwatering can cause enough stress to make your plant drop its leaves. If you cannot control the amount of water it gets where it's planted now you may want to move it to a spot that isn't watered so frequently.
