Watering Lemon Tree

We have a lemon tree that's about 8 or 9 ft. tall. Some of the leaves are starting to turn brown. In Phoenix, Az, how much and how often should we water?

I would water two times a week for at least 15-20 minutes (longer if it has been very hot and dry) so that at least 2-3" of water go in the soil every time you water. This will encourage deep root growth, which will help it survive in the higher temperatures.
