My DIY strawberry fountain:

You need several clay pots and a sturdy stake. Assemble  as above.  I use a second stake behind to add stability. Fill with rocks/compost/soil. Transplant strawberry plants. Water as needed. No water is wasted as the top pot drains into the next pot down.

This also allows strawberries to dangle elimnating the need to stake/string the plants. It also adds a barrier to the creepy-crawlies that love strawberry plants.
