First of all, how do you know that you over-fertilized the lawn? You have to dump some serious fertilizer on it to do that.
Are you sure you're not just in the middle of the heat of summer, that is drying up non-irrigated lawns?
Also, are you sure you're not seeing some sort of herbicide damage?
That said, if you HAVE over-fertilized your lawn, about all you can do is water it, and wait it out. At worst, you should have a pretty darned nice lawn NEXT summer!
