The best I could do out of the box was to flip the axis labels
and adjust their margin and plotArea padding
See the updated snippet
. What I couldn't do is to add spacing between the axis labels and the series.
One thing that could work is to add null data point at the start, but that doesn't feel great.
I hope this helps.
