The first thing I would do is mix a small amount (maybe 1/4 tsp) of dish soap per gallon of water and spray it on the ground then start a slow sprinkler and let it soak. The soap will break the water tension and make it go into the ground better. Many types of dirt/soil become water resistant when they get completely dry. It is best to water frequently enough and with enough volume to prevent that degree of dryness.
Maybe it takes a long time to grow, but remember that if nobody plants it, nobody has it.
