Are you mulch mowing the clippings back into the turf? Are you cutting higher during the excessive heat?? Are you allowing the soil to dry out between irrigation events???
Dethatching every Spring is most likely what is opening up the ground for weeds to germinate in... Organic matter(OM), is something like compost or even fertilizing with cornmeal or something along those lines... The most valuable OM is the material that you remove every Spring instead of getting it to rot into the soil and increase 'soil structure'...
