This is normally caused by letting the soil get too dry. Citrus trees are funny because they hold onto their leaves when they are under watered and then drop the leaves once water returns. You need to keep these plants evenly watered at all times to avoid this.

Also, you can use Mulch, it helps keep it moist.
