Newbie - how many GPH/times per week for Dwarf Arborvitae?

Hi All,

Although I work on many things inside my house I am absolutely clueless when it comes to anything outside. I have finally started trying to do some landscaping and have planted some "Dwarf Globe Arborvitae" bushes, specifically 3, among other things. They are in a fairly shady spot, have weed block fabric and mulch on top of them, and I am in SE NY (Long Island). My question is, how many times a week do I water them and how much water? I want to add some of these mini-sprinklers to my current IGS system, and currently the zone they are on is watered every other day for 20 mins in the middle of the night. The mini-sprinklers are rated in GPH.

Any help at all is appreciated. TIA!

That sounds about fair for watering but they don't particularily care for shade but neither do they like wind.
