Hi as stated in the title the shed is buildt on top of the slab with the walls going down over the slab, my last shed didnt do this and im at a loss to why these guys did.
Im trying to fill the gaps and make it pest proof. I tried silicon gap filler but that just sagged down and fell through. and looks like crap.
Id thought of filler foam but that can get out of hand.

Why not get a bag of quickset cement from the Big Green Shed? mix as per instructions on the bag and fill the holes, you might need something at the bottom of the sheets to prevent it from falling right through, as happened with the gap filler. I imagine it would be much cheaper than gap filler. If you plan to use steel wool buy the 'stainless steel' variety.

There is a product called Vermaseal, which consists of lengths of moulded plastic that fit the profile of your shed wall, but alas it should have been fitted when the shed went up. You might be able to retrofit it by loosening off your wall sheets. Links:
