To drain always or not ?

I live in an appartment, and all my pots have a saucer underneath. Between the saucer and the pot, I put either a layer of heavy pebbles (3/4") or clay feet of 1" to 1.5" , so that even if water accumulates in the saucer, it is never in contact with pot's bottom....

The question is: Shall I entirely forget the usual pottery crock drainage? and put some kind of mesh to avoid having the soil escaping from the pot's bottom hole ( reaching 1.5" diam in the large pots) ??

Thank you!

I sometimes use a small piece of landscape fabric.
