Mowing and bagging are a good first step. Once you begin to water again, the seeds they left behind might sprout so after mowing and bagging use a pre emergence product with a corn gluten base to keep the weed seeds from germinating. There are several brands on the market so just look for pre emergent weed controls and apply as recommended on the label. Good luck with your lawn!
