Continue mowing weekly. It is best for the lawn to not cut grass below 3 inches tall. It is also better not to bag grass clippings. Leaving the clippings on the lawn saves work, adds organic matter and nitrogen to your soil, and does not contribute to thatch build-up.
Avoid mowing your lawn during extreme hot and dry weather.
Keep up with the weeding as necessary.
Keep everything watered (including yourself). If you have irrigation, irrigate the lawn between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. These times allow for the least amount of loss from evaporation and drift from winds.
