Ahhh! This post is off to a great start but the last piece of advice is the exact opposite of how you should water! A drought-tolerant and thereby water-efficient lawn is one with a deep root system. Watering for a short time multiple times a week keeps roots near the surface and even causes them to grow upward, leaving the plant very succeptable to drought stress. Infrequent (aim for once a week) deep watering forces the roots to grow down deep in search of water. Soaker hoses are best, but if you do use sprinklers get ones that produce larger water droplets (as opposed to a fine mist) and water before 10 a.m. to minimize evaporation.
