What are the recommended placement and routing techniques for the following RC low pass filter circuit:

RC LPF SCH

I made an initial placement and routing that's shown below:

RC LPF PCB

Actually it's randomly placed and routed because I don't have any recommendations.

Thanks.

Edit #1:

Thanks all, since no performance matters, I made a cleaner layout based on your suggestions that will also match the schematic placement:

For frequencies this low placement doesn't really matter. Switching R6 and C7 will make the layout somewhat cleaner though.

1 kΩ and 12 µF give you a cutoff frequency of 13 Hz, and like s3c says then layout is not critical.

I would rotate R6 180°.
