Extending Herb Gardens and planning to cool 18th April

Today I decided it was time to do something about the front porch. It gets so hot in summer and the heat radiates back into the house. We have recently planted a Virginia Creeper beside the front wall, but thought that a trellis in front of the arch for it to grow on would solve the heat in summer problem. It will take a while to grow, so best to start now!
 Eventually I want to dig up the front lawn in front of this garden and make a bigger arched Herb garden. The trellis also needs fixing up properly, but at least now it is on the way.

The plants in the garden, are Virginia Creeper, new plants are Perennial Basil, Lemon Basil, Lemon Variegated Thyme, Thai Coriander.Further forward the existing herbs in this garden are Oregano, Purple Sage, Sage, Chives, Rosemary, Thyme and Capers.
