What's the best way to cut feathered closeboards on sloping garden?

Hi guys,

I have set my posts in my garden. I thought I would do the last bit of my fencing to save money as I had professionals to do the main bit. I wasn't in when they installed it and several months passed when I thought the last section is ready to be done.
I can't find any online tutorial on how the best way to trim the bottom of the boards when on a slope. I have gravel boards at the bottom which will be attached to the posts inline with the slope of the garden.
I can't imagine having to trim the bottom and the tops of the boards individually so that they are parallel with the gravel boards. So can anybody give me good advice what would be the easiest way? Thanks
