Question: axis labels on the wrong side of the vertical axis when looking at negative horizontal values; Can I change this?

When you look at negative horiztonal values on a basic plot, the axis labels can be obscured by gridlines or the plot itself. I have been told many times to keep axis labels and gradation labels outside of the plotting area to avoid adding more information than is neccessary in the actual plotting area. Is there a way to move the label to the other side and rotate it by 180 degree? How do people normally deal with this issue?

See my example of how the axis labels can be obscured by gridlines.
