Set fig.tight_layout to automatically make room. Note there is a bug in
the latest released matplotlib in which tight layout doesn't include all
text objects, but this is fixed in git v1.1.x branch and will be included
in the next release.
You can also use the "subplots_adjust" functionality to increase the
default spacing between your axes
