I am about to install a 6' tall vinyl privacy fence that will assemble to 8' wide. In my area, I will be digging a 10" wide post hole 36" deep. There are two runs of fence that are not divisible by 8 and I would like your opinion on how to space out the posts.

One run is 25'6". Should I have the last panel of this run be 1'6" or would that put the 5" vinyl posts too close together? Or, would this just look funny, and would it be better to trim the last two panels to be 4'9" each?

Another run is 44'. This seems like less of a problem to have the final panel be 4' wide, but I am curious if there are any rules of thumb for how to deal with situations like this.

This brand of fence has tabs for the top and bottom rails that allow the rail to slide into the post but resist the horizontal rails from sliding out. If the horizontal rails are trimmed, the tabs are trimmed off as well. I don't think this is the end of the world, but worth sharing.

New to fences and I appreciate your help. Thank you.
