But before anything else you need to clarify a few things, like

The first thing you need to do is to outline your property with the help of strings and sticks. This way you will understand the actual layout and mark corners and end points of the fencing.
2. Install end and corner posts
Dig the holes for end and corner posts first , usually 10'' in diameter and 30'' deep. When the holes are ready insert the posts into the holes and set them in concrete. Plumb and level the posts and with the help of a stakes mark the spots for line posts.
3. Set vinyl fencing line posts and rails
Now you need to dig holes for each line post and install them just as described above. Then you start installing the bottom rails.
4. Fill the inside of end and corner posts with rebar and concrete.
5. Install the pickets
Starting on one end start installing the pickets one by one, interlocking the tongues and grooves.
6. Install post caps
Apply PVC glue on the inside of the cap and place it on the vinyl fencing posts.
