pruning strawberry plants

I grew strawberries in a raised bed this year. My first time ever growing strawberries.

They were a mix of ever bearing and june bearing. They are done producing strawberries now.

I've read a little about pruning the plants back but that it shouldn't be done after 1 Aug.

My question is, if I don't prune them what should I do with them?

I've not seen that advise...and I don't think I'd take it unless the foliage was ratty looking and not really conducive to photosynthesis.
