Puppy proofing a garden

We're going to be welcoming a puppy into our family in a few weeks, and I need to get out garden puppy proof.

The garden is on a slope so there are gaps under a few of the concrete bases of the fence panels. Our shed is in bad shape and has a gap underneath, and our side gate is a sort of sew-through wrought iron one.

I'm gong to fill in the gaps with chicken wire, and with bricks where the chicken wire won't attach. Will this be enough or should I get someone in to puppy-proof it more seriously.

We're getting a small breed and I'm worried about her squeezing through small gaps.

I proofed with chicken wire - I did dig the bottom in in places and double it up when it seemed a bit low. Turns out that I needn't have bothered as pup is not very inclined to try to leave grin but she is a terrier and does like to dig so I worry that she could accidentally dig herself out and then go for a jolly round the neighbourhood.
